The Planning Board may approve, according to the Sub- 
division Control procedures authorized in Sections 81K 
to 81GG of Chapter 41 of the General Laws, a subdivi- 
sion plan in the Single Residence C Districts for a 

27 



tract of 10 acres or more in which some of the indi- 
vidual lots do not conform specifically to the lot 
area, frontage, setback, or yard requirements of Sec- 
tion IX above, provided that: 

a. The total area of all lots in such proposed sub- 
division is not less than the product of the 
total number of lots times the minimum lot size 
for the zoning district in which the subdivision 
is located. 

b. The aggregate street frontage of lots in such 
proposed subdivision, counting only one frontage 
for corner lots, is not less than three-fourths 
of the product of the number of lots times the 
minimum frontage requirement for the zoning 
district in which the subdivision is located; 

c. The proposed setback lines are clearly shown

by the Board to be adequate under the specific 
conditions which pertain to the property in 
question; 

d. The Planning Board finds that the proposed dis- 
position of lots and buildings, under the par- 
ticular circumstances involved, will make more 
efficient the provision by the Town, of health, 
safety, protective, and other services without 
detracting from the character of the neighborhood. 

Said subdivision plan, when approved and recorded, shall 
be considered a supplementary part of this Zoning By-Law,

line shall be changed in such way as to increase the ex- 
tent of nonconformity with the general provision of this

The Planning Board may approve, according to the Sub- 
division Control procedures authorized in Sections 
81K to 81GG of Chapter 41 of the General Laws, a sub- 
division plan in any Single Residence District other 
than Single Residence A District for a tract of ten 
(10) acres or more in which some of the individual 
lots do not conform specifically to the lot area, 
frontage, setback, or yard requirements of Section IX 

28 



above, provided that: 

a. The total area of all lots in such proposed sub- 
division is not less than the product of the 
total number of lots times the minimum lot size 
for the zoning district in which the subdivision 
is located, and in no case shall an individual 
lot have less than two-thirds of the required 
lot size for the zoning district in which the 
subdivision is located; 

b. The aggregate street frontage of lots in such 
proposed subdivision, counting only one frontage 
for corner lots, is not less than one-half of 
the product of the number of lots times the 
minimum frontage requirement for the zoning 
district in which the subdivision is located, 
and in no case shall an individual lot have 
less than 100 f frontage. 

c. The proposed setback lines are clearly shown 

on the proposed subdivision plan and are deemed 
by the Board to be adequate under the specific 
conditions which pertain to the property in 
question. 

d. The Planning Board finds that the proposed 
disposition of lots and buildings, under the 

particular circumstances involved, will make 
more efficient the provision by the Town of 
health, safety, protective, and other ser- 
vices without detracting from the character 
of the neighborhood. 

Said subdivision plan, when approved and recorded, shall 
be considered a supplementary part of this Zoning By-Law, 
and thereafter no land therein shall be sold and no lot 
line shall be changed in such way as to increase the ex-

Report of Town Manager 

To the Board of Selectmen and the Citizens of Andover: 

It is a pleasure to submit the second Annual Report under the Town 
Manager form of government for Andover. The past year was a pro- 
gressive one with major improvements in various areas of our munici- 
pal government, but perhaps more particularly in our Public Works 
Projects which were programmed to accommodate the future growth of our 
town. We are happy to report that these improvements were made while 
maintaining a stable tax rate of $26.00 per thousand for the third 
straight year. 

This favorable stable tax condition may not always exist as evidenced 
by a considerable loss in valuation due to the Federal and State road 
construction program for Route #U95 whereby a number of houses were 
removed from the assessment rolls as of December I960. Howe-vier, to 
offset this loss of revenue, consideration has been given to provide 
for the extension of industrial and commercial zoning in areas 
affected by this road construction. Such areas along Routes U95> and 
93 would not now lend themselves to residential or highly selected 
zoning but would accommodate industrial and commercial use in a 
proper pattern and in relation to the abutting property and surround- 
ings. A plan requesting this change will be presented for considera- 
tion at the 1961 Town Meeting. This approach to provide increased 
assessments to our tax base in areas that have now become unsuitable 
for residential dwellings should well be considered to broaden the 
tax base and thereby relieve the burden on the individual home owner* 

If we are to meet the demands for increased services which are bound 
to come from the gradual growth of the community that has already 
taken place, then we must consider additional sources of revenue aside 
from the individual property tax. In spite of the loss in some of our 
valuation, I am happy to report that the financial experience of the 
town during the past year reflected several areas of savings which 
made it possible to complete our budget year with a surplus* As of 
December 31, I960, the overall surplus position of the town amounted 
to $721*, 882.82. This is the highest surplus position the town of 
Andover has ever enjoyed. This favorable position will make it possi- 
ble for us to carry out another progressive program in 1961. 

In conformity with our Town Charter, a study was made during the past 
year in terms of improving the functions of several departments in 
order to effect savings and at the same time improve the services ren- 
dered by these units. From our analysis of this study, it is now 
possible to recommend for 1961 the employment of a full time Civil 
Engineer to serve in the Public Works Dept. A second proposal calls 
for the employment of a full time Recreational Director whose duty it 
will be to schedule a 12-month recreational program covering all age 
groups. To meet the needs of our Building Code as adopted at the 
I960 Town Meeting, it is recommended that a full time Building In- 
spector be employed in 1961. Another change to be budgeted for in the 

52 



forthcoming year will provide for a Deputy Supt. of Trees within the 
Dept. of Public Works to control the ever expanding needs of our tree 
program. 

Following are a few of the major programs undertaken during the past 
year: Plans for the reconstruction of Rogers Brock were developed and 
to date the section from Central St. upstream to Summer St. has been 
recorded for land taking. The State and Federal governments will par- 
ticipate in the major portion of the financial program for this pro- 
ject; The first stage of the drainage program for West And over has 
been completed and will be continued during 1961, This three-phase 
program will develop a Master Plan which will set the pattern for 
future development of our entire town drainage system; 32 acres of 
land on Love joy ^^-oad was purchased for a proposed lS-room elementary 
school, scheduled to be started in 1961; Memorial Hall Library 
children's extension is scheduled for completion in March of 1961; 
Approximately, a mile of road construction on Dascomb Rd. was com- 
pleted under Chapter 90; The main trunk sev:er line on Main St. will 
be completed in the early part of 1961. This will enable further ex- 
pansion of the town sewer system in West Andover and the center of 
town. Many of the above projects have been started with the projected 
view that in the next few years similar programs will be carried to 
meet the needs of our growing community without a direct increased 
financial burden to the taxpayer. 

During the past year, the town lost the services of two of its key 
personnel in the retirement of Town Clerk, George H. Winslow, and 
Director of Public Assistance, Arthur W. Cole. Their combined service 
to the town represents approximately 55 years of loyal and experienced 
government service which will be greatly missed by the Town Hall per- 
sonnel and the general public. 

Richard Wrigley, the Town Hall Custodian, passed away in August of 
I960. The Tawn Hall employees were greatly saddened by his death and 
his devotion to his duties cannot pass unmentioned. 

For Andover, I960 was the first full year under the Selectmen-Town 
Manager form of government and I should like to express my apprecia- 
tion to all the Town employees, to the members of the various 
committees and boards, and to the Selectmen for their cooperation. 
The progress maintained during I960 was a direct result of coordinated 
effort. We are looking forward to 1961 and the challenge it presents 
to all of us for a more progressive Andoverl 

Respectfully submitted, 

THOMAS E. DUFF 
TOWN MANAGER

THE LIBRARY'S NEW "SPACE AGE" 

The first library construction since 1927 is al- 
most complete. Anyone looking at the new wing from Main 
or High Streets might believe, except for the newness of 
the brick that it had always been there, it blends so well 
with the existing building. Many people - the architects, 
the contractors and sub-contractors, the clerk of the 
works, the workmen - have helped to create this lovely 
addition which only a short year ago was an idea on blue- 
prints. 

During the building period, the exterior trim 
of the old building, the flag pole and the iron fence in 
front have been repainted so that the total structure has 
a newly fresh appearance. 

The new wing, a tastefully executed combination 
of conventional brick and modern glass, has produced a 
room for children which is spacious, artistic and workable. 
It is hard to Imagine that we could have functioned in the 
cramped, awkward and inefficient room that served us until 
recently. 

Once we coveted other libraries their large and 
sunny workrooms. We no longer need to do so for the addi- 
tion has provided a bright and ample functional work area. 
Adjacent to it is a librarian's office filled with sun- 
shine, not large, but large enough to allow small staff 
conferences. Released space on this floor will house our 
record collection and serve as headquarters for the reser- 
vation and loan of audio-visual materials and equipment© 
Part of a gift from the Andover Evening Study Program has 
been used to purchase a tape recorder to be housed here; 
the rest will go toward the building of a record player. 

The addition relieves overcrowded conditions only 
for our children's services and in our work and office 
areas. Actually, as most townspeople know, the west-wing 
expansion represented only part of the recommended build- 
ing program. Without seeming to rush matters unduly, we 
must again call attention to the severely overcrowded con- 
dition of our adult reading room and book stacks. 

This past fall we drew up a capital expenditure 
program for the Memorial Hall Library over a ten year 
period. We assigned priority to the second step of our 
building expansion, although we do not know what place we 
shall be assigned on the capital improvement time-table, 
as other town departments have their needs also. If it 
turns out to be too far in the future, we must take tempo- 
rary steps to ease the situation. One such method, as we 

62 



suggested in the 1959 report, would be to make such alter- 
ations as would place our book service center at the front 
of the building, and would open up some better facilities 
for reading, reference and quiet study, although this plan, 
however, would do little, if anything, to mitigate our 
shelving problem. 

Present overcrowding affects the kind of service 
that we want to give. It takes little imagination to real- 
ize that the adult department is now getting the brunt of 
the population increase which earlier affected the Chil- 
dren's Room. 

We are not so much concerned about the large num- 
ber of young people who use our library for this could 
really be a cause for rejoicing. We are concerned because 
the physical plant provides no quiet reading or study areas 
to which serious readers, old and young, can escape out of 
the traffic jam in the reading room and around the charging 
desk. We have no course under the circumstances but to 
take steps, even when it involves some denial of the li- 
brary, to preserve the rights of all library users, who 
seek in the library a place conducive to leisurely browsing, 
quiet reading and study. Any disciplinary action which we 
take is taken for that reason. Too often this fall, pro- 
fessional staff members have been two-third monitors and 
one-third librarians. We can not give the relaxed, thought- 
ful book and information service under these trying circum- 
stances. 

The influx of young people who spill over into 
the main reading room every afternoon after school presents 
a problem which does not belong to the library alone. School 
administrators, counsellors and community leaders with whom 
we have talked recognize that this is also a parental and 
community responsibility. More recreational facilities 
after school and in the evening are not necessarily the 
only answer, although we are glad that extended study is 
being carried on along these lines. 

This past year there has been greater amount of 
communication between the junior and senior high school 
staffs and the Memorial Hall Library than usual. We should 
like to see this continue and to have more of it. It is so 
easy to go our own ways in a busy world. We believe that 
more frequent meetings could help to Increase the under- 
standing of our complimentary roles, to define better our 
areas of responsibility for materials and would result in 
better service, not only to boys and girls, but to faculty 
members as well. We should like to see developed a cooper- 
ative program of library instruction from the primary 
grades through senior high school. 

63 



Continued growth forces a library to look at its 
methods and to modernize them when it will contribute to 
meeting the demands of increased use more effectively and 
efficiently. Last year we recommended the Immediate in- 
stallation of a library card system and of a mechanized 
method for the charging out of library material. For a 
six months 1 trial period, we selected the Brodac circula- 
tion system, an automatic charging device using a trans- 
action card and working on the principal of heat reflection 
and absorption. 

Library cards were put into use last May and two 
charging machines installed in June. Library users and 
staff members are to be congratulated on the quickness with 
which they adapted themselves to these revolutionary changes. 
The library public was remarkably enthusiastic*, Borrowers 
like to feel that their library is keeping pace with the 
times. Any who feared that the machines might change a 
friendly service into a "faceless" operation had their fears 
allayed. The new system makes it more possible, rather 
than less, for staff to have time for personal service. 

We are recommending the renewal of our contract 
for the rental of the machines for another year. We know 
after a limited experience that automation has helped to 
eliminate time-consuming and monotonous routines, reduce 
the number of errors, allow better allocation of staff and 
will make possible more economical handling of added use 
to come. At the end of another year, we shall be able to 
produce more useful comparative studies so that we shall 
be more Intelligent in our future recommendations. 

Total circulation declined this past year, al- 
though it can be fairly shown that much of the loss was a 
paper one. Indeed, if this does not seem too much of a. 
paradox, we were in many ways busier than ever. Despite 
changes in loan periods and policy on renewals, we would 
probably have shown some loss, since many activities had 
to be curtailed; the Children's Room closed during its 
move to the top floor; and the library was often less than 
inviting because of construction dirt and noise. Greater 
efficiency would seem to justify such a circulation loss. 

Yet at the same time our electric eye checked in 
10,000 more visitors to our adult reading room than in 1959. 
There were more new borrowers, greater use of framed prints 
and films, more book loans to Chestnut Court, and Fanning 
Home, to junior and senior high school libraries and ex- 
panded hours of services at the South Elementary School 
Library. 



64 



We anticipate that even with our present loan 
policy that circulation will increase in 1961. 

Essential concentration on building and time- 
saving machines must never overshadow the library's central 
purpose which is to build a strong book collection and then 
to devise ways, through publicity, displays, personal en- 
thusiams and skillful guidance, which will result in its 
maximum use. 

Every day people seek the library to choose books 
and other materials for self improvement, for a study group, 
to help Improve performance on the job, to explore Zen 
Buddhism, to learn the peaceful uses of atomic energy, to 
redecorate a house or select a house design, to help set 
up an accounting system, to Improve reading skills. 

There is a kind of rhythm about a library year, 
A request for books on fly tying means January, for garden 
books and seed catalogs an approach to spring, for sports 
their own seasons. The school year brings its recurring 
requests for selections for a prize speaking contest or 
material for a graduation essay. 

Each year the need to understand the meaning of 
our scientific age grows greater and so does the library 1 s 
task in selecting books which accurately, yet in terms com- 
prehensible to laymen, explain the kaleidoscope of scien- 
tific and technical change. 

Scientists often look down on popularizers, yet 
we need writers of the stature of Loren Eisley, C. P. Snow 
and Jacob Bronowskl to help close the gap which exists be- 
tween the humanities and the sciences • 

With a bequest which was to be used for the pur- 
chase of technical books, we bought two important encyclo- 
pedias: the ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY and the 
ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY. Already these pub- 
lications have proved useful to technical men and students. 
The biology collection has been strengthened through judi- 
cious weeding and the addition of up-to-date, authoritative 
replacements • 

Our most ambitious activity of the year was the 
third annual observance of National Library Week. The loca] 
theme THE LIBRARY MIRRORS THE COMMUNITY was carried out in 
a variety of ways, with the main event a display of Andover 
products in the library hall which was seen by about six 
hundred people, most of whom, were unaware of the variety 
of manufacturing being carried on in Andover. The library's 
story through pictures was impressively told in the Andover 

65 



Townsman. Once again the main reading room was gay with 
flower arrangements provided by members of the Andover 
Garden Club, The temporary outside flood lights, origi- 
nally planned only for the week, proved so effective that 
they have been made a permanent installation. 

Great Books, now in its ninth year, gives proof 
of the remarkable hold that this book centered discussion 
program has on its participants. A small group carried on 
a GREAT DECISIONS i960 program with eight weekly discus- 
sions of pre-selected current Issues. Special displays 
arranged by the library continued to focus on issues and 
events. Individuals loaned personal collections ranging 
from old banks to Irish art. 

The international program EXPERIMENT IN INTER- 
NATIONAL LIVING brought seven boys and their leader to 
Andover for a few weeks stay. Special library cards were 
issued to them and most of the boys found their way to the 
library to borrow books and to look up material for articles 
commissioned by home papers. 

A questionnaire sent out to a group of selected 
libraries in Massachusetts and throughout the country 
brought interesting information about salaries and work 
conditions, including benefit programs such as Blue Cross. 
We already knew that professional salaries are generally 
higher outside Massachusetts and the results of the ques- 
tionnaire confirmed our impressions. Perhaps more signifi- 
cant for us is the breakthrough in salaries going on in our 
own state with two libraries reporting recently adoption of 
beginning professional minimums of $^800. 

Miss Nancy Pendlebury, a Simmons College Library 
School senior, did her practice work here in the spring. 
Apparently she liked what she found here since she Joined 
the staff August 1 as a professional assistant. 

We hare had many requests for talks about the 
library and for book talks. Staff members have continued 
to serve on professional committees and to contribute to 
professional meetings. It is a high honor for this library 
that Miss Margaret Lane has been selected to give the 1962 
Hewins lecture in a series established by Frederic G. Mel- 
cher in 19^6 to develop original research in the field of 
children's literature in America. 

This year's passage of a state aid bill for pub- 
Lic libraries could mean much in restoring Massachusetts 
public libraries to the place that they once held in the 
nation. The bill provides general grants-in-aid to com- 
munities whose public libraries meet certain requirements 

66 



and provides a general fund to enable the development of 
a statewide system of regional public libraries. 

Expression of the Interest of friends of the 
library took a variety of forms; personal service, gifts 
of money for memorial gifts, loans of hobby collections, 
flowers from gardens, and an outstanding gift of books by 
the Andover Council of Churches • One borrower showed 
originality by making some book display racks as his con- 
tribution to National Library Week. 

Early In March we look forward to being at home 
to the Andover townspeople and all those who worked on or 
for the new addition. This will take the form of an open 
house, at which time there will be an appropriate dedica- 
tion of the new wing. 

This report should properly end with a warm 
thank-you to members of the library staff for whom this 
has been a difficult year as they battled dust, noise and 
general Inconvenience and yet who, despite all this, car- 
ried on effectively and cheerfully, contributing many 
Imaginative Ideas to the building project.

Board of Public Welfare 

The Board of Public Welfare submits the following 
report for the year I960: 

During I960, a new form of aid, "Medical Assistance 
for the Aged", was set up, to be effective on October 1, 
I960. This assistance provides medical care for persons 
sixty-five years of age or over, whose income and re- 
sources are insufficient to meet the cost of necessary 
medical services. The Federal Government contributes 
fifty per cent of the cost and the State two-thirds of 
the remainder. At the present time it is very uncertain 
what will happen to this program and how much it will 
cost, as the new Congress is already trying to change the 
bill. This form of assistance is very liberal, and it is 
impossible to estimate how many persons will become eli- 
gible for benefits, and how much to appropriate for 1961. 

During I960, our Old Age Assistance rolls decreased 
from 109 cases on January 1, I960, to 92 cases on Decem- 
ber 31* Nine of these 109 cases were transferred to 
Medical Assistance for the Aged. In I960 we collected 
$l5,5Ul«52 under the lien law from estates of former 
recipients of Old Age Assistance. 

Under the Aid to Dependent Children law, we had 
seven cases at the start of the year, and five at the 
close of the year, while the Disability Assistance and 
General Relief programs have not shown much change, five 
cases being aided under the last two programs at the pres' 
ent time. 

In I960, we spent $83,898.70 out of an appropriation 
of $91,600.00, leaving a balance of $7,701.30 which will 
be returned to the town. The State will also refund to 
our Free Cash Account $52,572.70, reducing the cost of 
our assistance program to $31,326.00. 

During the summer of 1959, Mr. Cole expressed a de- 
sire to retire as of January 1, I960, but agreed to 
remain until January 1, 1961. An examination for his po- 
sition was held by the Civil Service Commission in Feb- 
ruary of I960, and in October two men from Lowell were 
certified for the position. No one from Andover passed 
the examination. Mr. Francis Maguire of Lowell was 
appointed to the position on December 12, I960, and 
started to work on December 19, only to give up the posi- 
tion on January 3, 1961. Mr. Cole, who had retired on 
December 31, I960, agreed to return temporarily until 
other arrangements could be made. 

69 



On January 3, 1961, the Selectmen met with Mr. War- 
shaw and Mr. Serio to discuss the responsibilities of 
the Board of Public Welfare, and the necessity for quick 
action in obtaining a new director for the department. 
The Selectmen agreed to give the Board a list of job 
responsibilities, and define their duties. 

At this time we wish to thank Mr. Arthur Cole for 
the many years of valuable and competent service he has 
rendered to the town. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joseph Serio, Chairman, 
Pauline A. Mayo, 
Thayer S. Warshaw. 



Arthur W. Cole, Director.

Annual Report of the 
Andover Housing Authority 

The year I960 was the tenth full year of occupancy of the Vet- 
erans Housing Project Andover 200-1, and the first full year of 
occupancy of the new development, Housing for the Elderly, Project 
Andover 667-l» This was a year full of change for the Authority. 

At the expiration of the term of Hoy Russell, who had served on 
this board since March of 19?£, David MacDonald, Jr. was welcomed as 
the new member at the Authority 1 s first meeting after Town Meeting. 

On April l£th, Mr. Ernest N. Hall resigned from the position of 
Executive Director, a post which he had filled since October 2, 19^2 • 
Before serving in this capacity, Mr. Hall had been a member of the 
Authority from their first organizational meeting in l°li8, and he had 
made a valuable contribution to the continued progress and success of 
the Housing Authority. The Housing for the Elderly Project is cer- 
tainly a credit to the Town, and the work done by him in connection 
with its development was largely instrumental in making it so. The 
Housing Authority felt keenly his resignation. 

On May 2nd of this year the Authority appointed James E. Manning 
to the position of Executive Director, the position he now holds. Mr. 
Manning has been employed by the Authority since August 19,19^0, and 
is the Authority's first and only person to work on a full-time basis, 
and he combines his former managerial duties wifch that of the execu- 
tive post. 

The 200-1 Project had very few maintenance problems this year. 
In the fall, 1*60 window shades were replaced at a cost of S989.bli, 
by the process of receiving bids for this work, as required by the 
State Housing Board. Over one-third of the interiors of the project 
units have been painted, by the tenants in some instances, and by 
project labor. Work is now underway to replace leaking steam traps. 

Maintenance problems that will be corrected next year wil3 be 
repairs to steps and sidewalks, continued replacement of leaking 
steam traps, and replacement of linoleum in a number of units, a nec- 
essary replacement in view of the hard usage given it during ten yeais 
of occupancy. 

Vital Statistics. There are 56 apartments in the 200-1 Project, 3U 
two-bedroom units, 20 three-bedroom units, and 2 four-bedroom units. 
The established annual income limit, which is regulated by the State 
Housing Board, is, for families with one or less minor dependent, 
?h,£00.; two minor dependents, 51*, 700; Three or more minor dependents, 
$1,900. 

The income allowed for continued occupancy, also 
71 



regulated by the State Housing Board, is, for families with one or 
less minor dependent, $5*000.$ two minor dependents, $5,200.; three 
or more minor dependents, $5,hOO. 

The average monthly shelter rent is *li9.00. To this 
is added, for utilities, a flat charge of $17«35, or $20.50, or $23.20 
as the case bay be, depending on the size of the unit occupied. 

The 667-1 Project is comprised of UO one-bedroom 
units, a Recreation Hall, and two laundry rooms which are provided 
with coin-operated washers and dryers. 

The yearly income limits are for two persons, 65 
years or older, #3,000.; one person 65 years or older, $2,500. The 
average rent, including all utilities, garbage and trash collection, 
is $50.00. 

The Recreation Room of Chestnut Court, the name by which the 
Housing for the Elderly development in known, has become more than 
just another room. The good people of And over have taken it under 
their wing, so to speak, and have provided it with many comforts. 
Through the efforts of Dr. Ttfllliam V. Emmons and the trustees of the 
Andover Home for the Aged, the room has been completely and most 
tastefully furnished. The adjoining kitchen was equipped with dishes 
and other serving pieces by the Andover Mothers 1 Club. Other gifts 
include a piano given by Mrs. John Carver, TV set given by the Andoner 
Service Club, electric wall clock by Mr. John Grecoe, three blue 
spruce trees by the Andover Village Improvement Society, and spring 
flowers planted and maintained by the Andover Spade and Trowel Club. 
The residents have been the honored guests at holiday parties given 
them by the November Club and the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. The Mem- 
orial Hall Library furnishes the room with a lending library, the 
books being changed on a monthly plan. Lest anything be left out, 
Dr. Emmons and the trustees as before mentioned, again seeing what 
was needed, had delivered at the door a new light-weight, easily man- 
euverable wheel chair, to be on hand when needed. It has been put to 
considerable use and is deeply appreciated. 

The residents have recently formed an organization known as the 
Chestnut Court Associates, by-laws have been completed and adopted, 
and officers elected. Through this means they have become a self- 
governing body, a well integrated successful social unit, the indiv- 
idual character of which is the preservation of independence and co- 
operative purpose. Mr. Thomas P. Eldred, chairman of the Andover 
Housing Authority, presided at their first organizational meeting. 

Mr. Robert Townsend superintends the Housing for the Elderly de- 
velopment, and maintains the high standard he has helped to establish. 
Mr. Raymond Hutchings, a resident, serves as Special Police Officer. 

Twelve families have moved from the 200-1 Project and five fam- 
ilies have moved into larger apartments within the Project. In the 

72 



667-1 Project, two persons have moved from the development, and the 
vacated units filled by new tenants. The Management Office keeps an 
extensive file of those wishing to apply for tenancy in either of the 
projects. As this report is being written, arrangements are being 
completed to come to the rescue with emergency housing for a young 
Andover family who suffered loss of their home and all its effects 
as the aftermath of a sweeping fire which occurred during the holi- 
day season* 

The payment to the Town of Andover in lieu of taxes for the year 
I960 was $1,876.00. 

UIBAN RENEWAL 

In summary of the achievements and progress toward the goal of 
Urban Renewal in Andover, the Andover Housing Authority hereby re- 
ports to the citizens the following on Urban Renewal activity, I960. 

On May 25, I960, United States Senator Leverett Saltonstall an- 
nounced approval of a $62,02$. Federal Urban Renewal Planning Advance 
to the Town of Andover for Survey and Planning of the "Central Jtnd- 
over n Urban Renewal Project. In conjunction with this approval it 
was also announced that, in anticipation of Andover* s requiring a 
Federal Capital Grant of Funds upon completion of planning, $£lU,700. 
had been reserved in Andover* s name for the Project. 

Following the Federal Urban Renewal Administration approval of 
Andover 1 s Application for funds, the Andover Housing Authority, on 
behalf of the Andover comrnunity, executed, June 23> I960, a "Contract 
for Planning Advance Funds" with the United States of America for a 
sum of $62,025* Under this Contract and for your personal informa- 
tion, the Urban Renewal Project in Andover will be further identified 
in the future by the Contract Number which is Urban Renewal Project 
Massachusetts R^22, which simply translated means it is the twenty- 
second Renewal Project in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts receiv- 
ing Federal Assistance. 

On approval by the Federal Urban Renewal Administration of Plan- 
ning Funds, the Authority proceeded to select a Consultant to con- 
duct the surveys and prepare plans for the Andover Urban Renewal 
Project Area. The well-qualified and nationally outstanding Urban 
Renewal consulting firm of Candeub, Fleissig and Associates of Bos- 
ton, Mass. and Neward, New Jersey, was signed to a $16,000. planning 
contract with the Authority on August 8, I960. 

Rirther, to administer the Urban Renewal activities for the And- 
over community, the Authority proceeded to select on October 10, 
I960, Mr. James W. Franklin, an experienced and well -qualified Ur- 
ban Renewal Administrator to be the Director of Urban Renewal. 

In the administrative management of the Urban Renewal activities, 
the Authority then selected and placed under Contract in October, 

73 



I960, Mr* Fredric S* O'Brien, Andover, Mass., to act as Legal Coun- 
sel, and Mr* Ralph Spector, Andover, Mass*, to be Project Accountant. 

Upon requisition to the Federal Government, in October, I960, 
the Authority received an advance of £15*000* for project expenses 
to date* 

The Authority takes further pride in reporting to the community 
that, at this time, one-third of the Consultants services are com- 
plete on survey and plans and there is under consideration for sel- 
ection an Acquisition Appraiser to value properties in the Project 
Area* Also, other competent appraisers are being contacted for the 
purpose of conducting an appraisal to extablish re-use sale price 
values of project land* 

In the coming year, the Andover Housing Authority will continue 
to keep all informed and wants to call to your attention that should 
you have any question on Urban Rsnewal to contact Mr* Franklin at 
the Office of Urban Renewal, 66 Main Street, Andover, Mass*, Tele- 
phone, GReenleaf 5-6£5>3, or any Authority member©

ANNUAL REPORT OF 
THE DEVELOPMENT AND INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION 

The work of the Development and Industrial Commission 
during the year 1960 was concerned with the following gen- 
eral areas of activity, 

1. Meetings were held with the Planning Board 
and with that Board's consultant to study 
the need for changes in the Industrial 
zones and the Industrial zone By-Law. The 
recommendations submitted to the Planning 
Board by this Commission were based on con- 
stant study of the elements of Industrial 
zoning which tend to attract desirable in- 
dustry without detriment to the community. 
As a result of these joint meetings, the 
Planning Board has prepared extensive re- 
visions for consideration by the Town in 
the Annual Town Meeting in 1961. 

2. The Commission has retained a Consultant 

to compile pertinent data for dissemination 
to all individuals and agencies interested 
in locating industrial plants in Andover 
This work has involved conferences with 
various town departments and functionaries 
in order to insure an accurate, comprehen- 
sive compilation of the kinds of data in- 
dustrial prospects require for analysis 
when they are considering locating in a 
community. It is recognized that the up- 
dating of this information is a continuing 
process and arrangements will be made to 
keep this information current. The Commis- 
sion considers it imperative that these 
data be compiled in a usable form and be 
made available through the office of the 
Town Manager. 

3. The Commission has worked constantly to 
attract desirable industries. It is diffi- 
cult to keep our citizens informed regard- 
ing specific contacts which have been made 
because industrial representatives invaria- 
bly request that such information be treated 

78 



confident ially 

The adoption of the recommended industrial zoning 
changes by the Town and the opening of Route #93 should 
tend to encourage industrial prospects to locate in Ando- 
ver. 

The greatest deterrent to the development of our 
newer Industrial zones is the lack of adequate utilities. 
In the present highly competitive market, the communities 
that provide adequate utilities obtain the new industrial 
plants. We have the assurance of local utility companies 
that they will meet the requirements of any industry as 
long as the rate of consumption warrants the cost of ex- 
tending the required service. If Andover is to realize 
its industrial potential, we need a similar assurance from 
the Town, particularly with regard to the extension of 
Town Water service. 

We have studied the projected engineering plans of 
the Public Works Department for extending adequate water 
service to our industrial areas. They appear to us to be 
well conceived, realistic and well within the Town's scope 
of accomplishment. There remains the urgent need for the 
Town to demonstrate its willingness to expedite the exten 
sion of water service to the required location whenever a 
willing and able industrial prospect presents a water con 
sumption need that will warrant positive action. We be- 
lieve that such action will be warranted when the income 
from the extended service will be sufficient to liquidate 
the cost of the project within a reasonable period of time, 
due consideration being given to the other advantages which 
may accrue to the Town from the Industrial growth such as 
Real and Personal Property taxes, excise taxes, etc. 

Therefore, this Commission wishes, once again, to 
alert our citizens to this situation and to recommend that 
the Town be prepared to act promptly in this regard when- 
ever the circumstances warrant such action.

Scout Camps, and piggeries. Samples of milk were obtained period- 
ically throughout the year, and results of tests were sent to deal- 
ers. All complaints relative to sewage disposal and other nuisances 
were investigated. 

An X-ray Mobile Unit, sponsored by the Essex County Tuberculosis 
Association, was stationed at the Town House, and free chest X-rays 
were available to all food handlers. In I960 there were no cases 
of Tuberculosis admitted to the Sanitorium from Andover. As far as 
available records can be established, this is the first year that 
such has been the case. Field visits, including case findings and 
patch testing were made on all patients and contacts of communicable 
diseases. Contacts of all Positive Patch Test Re-actors found in 
the School Patch Test Program were x-rayed or given a Tuberculin 
test. 

The licensing program of Day Nurseries and Kindergarten was car- 
ried out and visits were also made to crippled children, rheumatic 
fever patients, premature infants, Nursing Homes, and Rest Homes 
and Infirmaries. 

Biologic supplies are available to doctors on a twenty-four 
hour basis. 

A total of 167 plumbing permits were issued and $734.25 was 
turned over to the Town Treasurer. 

A rabies inoculation clinic was conducted on two successive 
Saturdays. A total of 475 dogs were inoculated against Rabies 
during this operation.

Because of the demand for building lots and the many problem 
areas encountered, the Board of Health found it necessary to re- 
tain the services of a consultant engineer.

REPORT OP THE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

By vote of the Town Meeting In March, i960 a Conser- 
vation Commission was formed under Chapter 223, Acts of 
1957 (Chapter 40, Section 8c of the General Laws). The 
Town Manager appointed five members to the Commission at 
the end of April, This group first met in June, i960 and, 
in September, elected Albert Retelle, Chairman and Phebe S. 
Miner, Secretary. The other members are Heinrlch Rohrbach, 
Ralph Goodno and William Greenwood. 

In June, Mr. Retelle, at the request of Mr. Duff, at- 
tended a public hearing having to do with the enlargement 
of camping facilities at the Harold Parker State Forest. 

In December, the Commission met with the Planning 
Board and Mr. Greeley to discuss the role of the Conser- 
vation Commission in Andover and to discuss the possibil- 
ities of "flood plain zoning" or the formation of a "con- 
servancy district." 

The Commission has as yet acquired no land, but is in 
the process of surveying open lands in the town, and when 
it is ready to acquire lands, it will be able, under leg- 
islation passed in July, I960, to apply for reimbursement. 
Chapter 517 of the Acts of 19o0 authorizes the Commission- 
er of Natural Resources to reimburse cities and towns up 
to $0% for funds expended through the Conservation Commis- 
sion in acquiring land. 

The Commission hopes to acquaint the town with its 
open space conservation problems through a special collec- 
tion In the Memorial Hall Library and by periodic reports 
in the local papers.

pl anning Board Report 

The major planning effort for the year i960 was 
concentrated on a complete revision of industrial districts. 
Under the joint direction of the Planning Board and the 
Industrial Commission, Professor Greeley and his assist- 
ant, Mr. Ronald Saroff, surveyed the town ! s industrial 
potential and probable future needs, with particular 
attention to the suitability of the land along new Inter- 
state Highway 93. Recommendations stemming from this 
work are to be presented to the voters at the Annual 
Town Meeting. 

Included in the survey made by Greeley & Saroff were 
a precis of needs and recommendations for future school 
sites, made at the request of the School Committee. 

The Planning Board revised its own Rules and Regula- 
tions governing the subdivision of land, and after public 
hearing these improved regulations were adopted on 
June 3, I960. 

The Board continued work with the By-law Revision 
Committee with significant progress toward a complete 
new zoning by-law. The By-law Revision Committee is 
currently at work on a third draft and it is hoped a 
proposed new zoning by-law may be ready for presentation 
to the voters by next fail or winter. 

Town Meeting established a Conservation Commission 
in March, I960. There has been and will be close co- 
operation netween the Commission and the Planning Board 
regarding recreational and open land uses throughout the 
town. 

Two members of the Planning Board have been appointed 
to serve on a Neighborhood Analysis Committee, in connec- 
tion with application for recertif ication of the Workable 
Program for Andover ! s proposed Urban Renewal project. 

Proposed action by the Land Acquisition Committee to 
purchase land for a school site and for expansion of 
Pomp's Pond bathing facilities were referred to the Plan- 
ning Board for its opinion, and in both cases the pro- 
posals were approved by the Board. 

The League of Women Voters wiLl undertake a compre- 
hensive survey of the town in the form of a questionnaire 
to be answered by the citizens. The Planning Board, to- 
gether with Professor Greeley has been instrumental in 
preparing this questionnaire, which should yield much 
useful information to the Board regarding the opinion and 

88 



judgment of the citizens as to the Town 1 s future develop- 
ment. 

Town Meeting of March, i960 enacted a new provision 
of the Zoning By-law allowing so-called "cluster" resi- 
dential development, designed to improve efficiency of 
construction and maintenance of roads and utilities and 
at the same time preserve open spaces. No plans employ- 
ing this method of subdivision have as yet been approved, 
but several developers are currently working on prelimin- 
ary plans using this principle. The Planning Board is 
recommending two improvements in the provision to the 
next Town Meeting. 

Mr. Robert Goodwin was appointed to the Board to fill 
the vacancy created by the resignation of our last Chair- 
man, Mr. Donald Thompson. Mr. Harold King was elected 
Chairman. 

In its administration of the Subdivision Control 
Law, the Planning Board, in i960, has endorsed 109 lots 
under Form A (plans not requiring subdivision control 
procedure). Ten subdivisions with a total of 27l|- lots 
have been under Planning Board consideration during i960. 
Of these, 5 subdivisions with a total of 93 lots have been 
approved; 5 remaining in the preliminary stage.

Weights And Measures 



Mr. Thomas E. Duff, Town Manager 
Andover, Massachusetts 

Dear Sir: 

The Department of Weights and Measures hereby submits its 
annual report for the year ending December 31, 1960. 

The Department tested a total of 658 weighing and measur- 
ing devices. Of the total number tested, 38 required 
adjustment, 4 were unable to be adjusted, 1 was condemned 
and 615 were sealed. Total fees for above testing, adjust- 
ing and sealing amount to $632.45. Fees collected as of 
December 31, amounted to $593.95 which has been turned 
over to the Town Treasurer, whose receipt I hold. 

During the latter part of last year, this Department in- 
itiated an additional entirely new concept of Weights and 
Measures protection for Andover residents. This new pro- 
tective plan will assure shut-ins, cripples, retired 
persons, blind people, families with no cars, etc., that 
honest weight and full measure may be expected of each 
and every item delivered to any of the above families. 
In order for this new plan to be effective, it will re- 
quire the full cooperation of the consuming residents. 
The Sealer requests that above individuals contact the 
Department of Weights and Measures at GR5-2617 anytime 
the weight of a delivered item is questioned. Meats, 
poultry, fish, etc., will be weighed in the consumers 
home. When items weigh the amount marked and charged for, 
a customer is assured that the concern delivering the 
item is reputable. If item being weighed proves to be 
underweight or under measure, customer will be advised 
that the concern is not reputable and the concern will 
be prosecuted if the customer so desires. In any event, 
the results of all reweighings should be passed along to 
friends and relatives by word of mouth. The merchant 
that delivers honest weight and measure should receive as 
much praise as the dishonest merchant should receive words 
and acts of condemnation. Since the Town Report has a 
limited circulation, it is imperative that all readers of 
this report inform their friends of this new home reweigh- 
ing service. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Newton A. Jones 
Sealer of Weights and Measures

REPORT OF THE 
COMMITTEE TO STUDY THE TOWN BY-LAWS 



Since the last annual Town Meeting, the Committee to 
Study the Town By-Laws has continued its work on rewriting 
the Zoning By-Law for purposes of clarification. 

A first draft of the proposed recodification was pre- 
sented to the Planning Board in August, 1960. Your Com- 
mittee had a lengthy and very fruitful conference with the 
Planning Board in October, 1960. An amended draft of the 
proposed recodification was then prepared, which incorpora- 
ted the comments and conclusions stemming from the October 
conference with the Planning Board. This redraft was like- 
wise discussed and analyzed at length with the Planning 
Board in November, 1960, and further modifications suggest- 
ed. After consultation with the Planning Board's planning 
expert, it is expected that a further amended draft will 
be submitted early this year to other interested town 
boards and officials as well as to local practicing attor- 
neys specializing in land law for their comments and 
criticisms o 

The work is now far enough along so that we are con- 
fident that the proposed recodification of the Zoning By- 
Law will be presented to the 1962 annual meeting at the 
latest. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Robert S. Zollner, Chairman

Office of Veterans' Service 



The Office of Veterans' Services submits to the 
Town Manager the following report for the year 19&0. 

The case load covering only interviews and conferen- 
ces which required paper work are listed below. Inter- 
views of an advisory and informative nature are not in- 
cluded in the following summary :- 

Allowances and allotments ( federal )-136; photosta- 
tic copies of discharges, war records, service re- 
cords and vital statist ics-1^61|; photostatic copies 
of miscellaneous papers of a diversified nature-7llj-; 
employment-l6; housing applications -l].l; Social Se- 
curity cases-32; tax cases (town, state and federal) 
-39; burials-30; compensations and pensions-135; 
Veterans Administration financial reports-lj.3; hospi- 
tal, dental and medical cases-137; insurance -li3; 
home loan-28; education-l5; all other categories 
requiring paper work-593. 

Deaths during the year totaled 38 in the following 
categories:- 

World War 0ne-2l; World War Two-11; Recipients of 
Veterans 1 Benefits-6. 

On July 1, i960, the new pension law, known as H. R. 
7650, became effective. This new legislation provides 
pensions to the widows and children of World War Two and 
the Korean Conflict. Prior to July 1, i960, only the de- 
pendents of World War One were eligible for this federal 
benefit. The new law offers pensions to the widows and 
children of all wars, but there are certain financial 
ceilings of income to be considered for eligibility. 
Even though the income of a widow surpasses the pres- 
cribed ceiling, the children (under 18 years of age) are 
still eligible. Every week brings to our attention cases 
of widows or their children, who are eligible, but never 
applied for this benefit. This office has placed state- 
ments regarding the new law in the papers during the year. 
We cannot emphasize too strongly the fact that all widows, 
especially those with minor children, whether the widows 
work or not, should contact this office to ascertain if 
they are eligible for this pension. It is imperative 
that they do so immediately, as all pensions cases are re- 
troactive only to the date of application. 



101 



The new pension law should greatly decrease the po- 
tential number of cases of widow 's and children 1 s aid in 
the future. Although it may not entirely wipe out the 
demands for supplemental aid from this office, it should 
greatly diminish the number of cases which will need as- 
sistance from the Commonwealth and the Town. Time, alone, 
will bring the answer. 

The demand for assistance in meeting hospital, doc- 
tor and medication bills is rising rapidly, and will con- 
tinue to do so as the World War One veterans are now in 
the age bracket where such aid is needed. The parents of 
veterans of World War Two are also reaching the stage of 
declining years, and are eligible for assistance through 
this office. We are awaiting the final legislation on 
the Federal Program, "Medicare", which undoubtedly will 
be in operation this year. What impact this will have on 
our case load is problematic at the present time. It may 
relieve our office of some cases of people over the age 
of sixty-five, but we will still have the veterans, their 
wives, children and parents (under this age) eligible for 
Veterans' Benefits. Employment has been spotty in this 
vicinity during the last three months, and this brought 
some new cases on our rolls. 

We wish to thank all local veteran organizations, 
the American Red Cross, church and other charitable or- 
ganizations, the Board of Selectmen and the Town Manager, 
and the many officials in the town hall for their ever 
willing cooperation and assistance to the Office of Vet- 
erans' Benefits 

Respectfully submitted, 

Francis P. Markey, Agent 
Veterans' Service Office

Report of Recreation Committee 



Five playgrounds operated this year with a marked in- 
crease in registration and daily attendance. The play 
areas were Central, Ballardvale, Indian Ridge, West Cen- 
ter and Shaw sheen. The program consisted of the usual 
activities, handi-craft work, inter-playgrounds tourna- 
ments and sports, Annual Field Day at Central and the 
Annual Picnic at Canobie Lake, New Hampshire. Pony 
League Baseball was inaugurated for the first time, 
taking boys, after they leave the Little League and be- 
fore they are eligible or old enough for the Junior Lea- 
gue or the Twilight League. The new League had a most 
successful season, and the appropriation for 1961 car- 
ries a request for support of this phase of our program. 
We also supported the newly created Pony Football League, 
which was a great success. Our commendation goes forth 
to the interested group of citizens who made this start 
in football for small boys possible. The ages range from 
10-13 years of age, and the limitation on weight is 120 
pounds. Over one hundred boys participated in League 
games, and all were adequately equipped with uniforms and 
accessories. Our budget for this year also carries a re- 
quest for support of this additional feature of recrea- 
tion. Girls' from ages thirteen through sixteen have re- 
quested help in forming a Soft Ball League for them, and 
we are recommending it. 

Requests of a diversified nature have come to us and 
among these are Volley Ball, Pony Hockey, Little League 
Baseball and Theatrical Equipment. Several organizations 
have started to show a welcome interest in a general re- 
creation program on a yearly basis. The League of Women 
Voters have been very active in enlarging our program, 
and conducted a town wide survey on this subject. The 
Recreation Council, not affiliated with the Recreation 
Committee, have in progress a very elaborate plan for 
adult recreation, embracing many categories of enjoyment 
and relaxation, as well as being beneficial to the parti- 
cipants. This group have not asked for monetary assis- 
tance, as they plan to be self supporting, and they have 
our most sincere best wishes for success in their endea- 
vors. Several requests have come in regarding flooding 
various places for skating. There have been so many re- 
quests from so many different groups that it is our op- 
inion that recreation should be placed under the Board of 
Parks and Playgrounds, or a full time person be appointed 
to attend to and carry out the program that scores of our 
citizens believe should be established. 



103 



Pomps Pond 

The hot, dry summer brought hundreds to the municipal 
bathing beach at Pomps Pond, and all records for atten- 
dance and registration were broken. Life saving and wa- 
ter front classes were conducted for children, over five 
years of age, and adults. The picnic site was enlarged 
and a new area cleared of brush. Family picnics become 
more numerous each year at the popular spot. It appears, 
at this time, that the Land Acquisition Committee will 
complete their plans for purchasing the Boy Scout Camp 
and the surrounding areas. This will provide two new 
baseball diamonds, and a building which could be used 
for many recreational and social activities. This same 
committee is endeavoring to purchase more land adjacent 
to our present water front, thus giving the town a great- 
ly improved beach, and alleviating the crowded conditions 
which now prevail. In looking ahead, Pomps Pond and the 
surrounding land bring us a challenge in developing this 
beautiful spot into a recreational center second to none. 
This will mean yearly expenditures over a long range pe- 
riod and a well thought out plan. 

The traditional Easter Candy Hunt was held on Easter 
Saturday with the same enthusiasm as that of previous 
years. There were many more young participants than in 
former years. Only two Halloween Parties were held this 
year. One was held at Central and the other was held at 
the North District. Although letters were sent to all PTA 
groups about one month before October 31st, only repre- 
sentatives from two organizations attended a special 
meeting and made plans. The lack of interest in publicly 
sponsored Halloween Parties has been on the wane for the 
past two years, and we believe the time has come to dis- 
continue them. Therefore, we are not including any appro- 
priation for such parties in our budget. 

IVe welcome the new impetus given to recreation in all 
forms by so many different groups this year, and we trust 
their efforts will continue to increase, to strengthen 
and broaden the general recreational program. Our special 
thanks to the Board of Public Works, the Town Manager, 
the Police and Fire Departments, the Playground and Pomps 
Pond Staffs and the volunteer workers for their generous 
assistance and cooperation during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James D. Doherty, Chairman Durwood W. Moody 

Francis P. Markey, Secretary Walter Pearson

Report of Tree, Moth and Dutch Elm Depts. 

During i960 the Tree Department planted 170 shade 
trees along town streets. A diversified planting pro- 
gram was followed with several tree varieties being 
used, including Norway, Crimson King, Sugar and Sycamore 
Maples, Pin Oaks, Plane Trees, Little Leaf Lindens, 
Weeping Willows, Flowering Dogwood and Maackia (small 
flowering tree). The Department planted ^0 flowering 
trees purchased by the School Department on the Junior 
High School grounds. A total of 1700 Fir Balsam and 
Norway Spruce seedlings were set out on town land at 
Haggetts Pond and Wood Hill Heservoir areas. 

Dutch Elm disease appeared in 90 of the 135 public 
elms tested in i960. Of these 80 have been taken down 
and burned at the town dump and the remainder will be 
removed by March before Elm bark beetles emerge. These 
beetles are known to carry Dutch Elm disease from in- 
fected to healthy Elms. Twelve diseased Elms were re- 
moved on bid contract. 

A spray program designed to protect Andover's shade 
trees from destructive insects and diseases was carried 
out. Three sprays were applied to town Elms for control 
of leaf feeding insects and bark beetles. Town wide 
spraying was done to control birch leaf miners, oak leaf 
miners, gypsy moths, tent caterpillars and other destruc- 
tive leaf feeders. Foliar feeding was incorporated with 
the regular spray program. 

Obstructing limbs and brush were removed to permit 
proper street lighting and visibility along town streets. 
Chemical control of roadside brush and eradication of 
poison ivy was continued along roads, at playgrounds, 
school areas, and Pomps Pond recreation area. 

Regular department work of pruning, bark tracing, 
brush cutting, removal of dead and dangerous trees, and 
utility wire clearing supervision and inspection was 
performed. 

Tree Department personnel worked with the Highway 
Department sanding, salting and plowing streets and 
sidewalks during all snow storms.

WATER SYSTEM 

The improvement of the water distribution system 
was somewhat curtailed in i960 in order that the neces- 
sary changes could be made in connection with the con- 
struction of route 495. 



1662 feet of 12" C. L.C.I, water main with 2 hydrants 
were laid in Poor and William Street. 2120 feet of ac- 
cess road and dike were built to protect the outlet side 
of Haggetts Pond.

A microscope and testing equipment were purchased 
for the Pumping Station to aid in quality control of 
water. 

Several test holes were dug for Rogers Brook de- 
sign in connection with utility changes. North Heading 
purchased 1,653,270 gallons. 

Utilities were adjusted for the Dascomb Road 
Chapter 90 construction. 

Prospect Reservoir was cleaned and chlorinated. 
In following an algae control program, Haggetts Pond 
was treated twice. 

The fences at both open reservoirs were repaired 
and painted. More woodland was cleared at the back of 
Haggetts Pond. 

All gates were tested in the new Wood Hill system. 
100 feet of main was lowered in Marilyn Road. Harding 
Street manholes and gate boxes were adjusted for street 
surfacing. 

Maintenance work includes special meter readings, 
water sampling, leaks of various magnitude, low pressure 
problems, special turning off and on water services, 
repair jobs, hydrant repairs, replacement of old ser- 
vices, connection of new services, tying in new sub- 
division and services of miscellaneous conditions. The 
stilling basin at times requires daily trips. Well over 
1,000 special calls have been tabulated. 

107 new services were added to the system this 
year. 

2^0 new meters were installed and 90 old meters 
were repaired.

SEWERAGE SYSTEM 

The Shawsheen River Relief Trunk Sewer from 
Riverina Road to upper Essex Street was voted at the 
last annual Town Meeting, and construction started by 
the end of the year. Pipe was laid in most of Essex 
Street and work started off North Main Street. The 
project was stopped by extreme cold weather. 

Further maintenance of the outfall sewer was re- 
quired. Leaks were fixed and some manholes were re- 
paired. 

Route 495 bridge over the Merrimack will require 
the relocation of the river outlet. Considerable time 
was spent on preliminary work. Major changes in the 
system will be caused by the road construction and 
plans have been drawn by our consulting Engineers, 
Camp, Dresser & McKee. 

The sewer main cleaning program was continued. 
More than 75 sewer blocks were cleared. 

Fifty-one new sewer services were connected. 

Added to the system by subdividers: 

Cindy Lane 500 ft. 15" 

Marilyn Road 300 ft. 8" 

Construction of the sludge digesting tank at the 
Ballardvale Treatment Plant was completed with one 
new filter bed added. 



We wish to express our thanks for the splendid 
co-operation accorded the Department of Public Works 
this past year.

Report of Trustees of Spring Grove Cemetery 



The Trustees of Spring Grove Cemetery submit their An- 
nual Report for the year 1960. 

During the year, the Cemetery sold 27 new lots and had 
92 interments. From the sale of these lots, and from pay- 
ments received from 8 lot holders for the placing of their 
lots under perpetual care, a total of $5,856 was turned 
over to the Town Treasurer to be added to our Perpetual 
Care Funds. These now total $139,369 from which income 
amounting to $4,474 was received in 1960. 

We also received $4,815 from the sale of lots, inter- 
ments, sale of vaults, lot care and other services pro- 
vided by the Cemetery for its lot owners. The general 
receipts and investment income totalled $9,289 which was 
turned over to the Town as an offset to the appropriation 
given us at Town Meeting. The adjusted appropriation for 
1960 was $24,054 while the actual cost of operating the 
Cemetery for 1960 was $14,765. 

Last year, the improvement program started in 1953 was 
completed except for additions to be made to the hard sur- 
faced roads in the Cemetery. We laid 630 additional feet 
of hot top road during the year and have put in a total of 
4,915 feet since the start of this program. 

It is expected that the actual operation of the Cemetery 
will be under the supervision of the Town Manager in fut- 
ure years and that the responsibility of the Trustees will 
be principally a fiscal one. This was the intent of the 
Town Manager plan and the partial supervision that the 
Trustees have exercised this year is understood by every- 
one to be a temporary arrangement. The Trustees feel cer- 
tain that their plans and policies will be continued in 
the future to the satisfaction of all concerned.

Fire Department 

To the Town Manager : 

The 1960 report of the Fire Department is hereby submitted. 

Service: A total of 1629 calls for service were re- 
ceived and answered. Five false alarms were sounded. 
Twelve mutual aid responses were made to the following 
cities or towns : -Lawrence 4, Tewksbury 2, North Reading 3, 
Haverhill 1, Wilmington 1, and Derry, New Hampshire 1. 

The estimated loss from fire, of all types re- 
ported, was approximately $75,500.00. This figure repre- 
sents for the most part the actual loss settlement. Valua- 
tion of buildings wherein fire occurred was approximately 
$3,262,875.00, based on figures obtained from the Assessors 
office. 

Ambulance calls totaled 669. Of this number, 
non-residents were billed for the use of the ambulance 92 
times and charged as follows; 84 at $10.00 and 8 at 
$25.00 for a total billing of $1,040.00, payable to the 
Town Treasurer. 

Fire Prevention: Permits for the installation of 
fuel oil burning equipment and the required inspection of 
the same and related storage facilities amounted to 156. 
The moneys received for these permits is turned over to 
the Town Treasurer each month. Installation and inspec- 
tion of Liquified Petroleum Gas systems amounted to 26. 
Eighteen permits for the use of explosives for blasting 
purposes were issued as required by law. Approximately 
3000 permits for open air fires were issued as required 
by law, the issuance of which is dictated by weather con- 
ditions and any exposures involved. 

An inspection of all public and private school 
buildings was carried out and recommendations issued to 
proper authorities where conditions are thought to warrant 
corrective measures. 

All mercantile, industrial and dwelling build- 
ings of three or more apartments, of which we are cogni- 
zant, were inspected to the extent allowable by law and a 
report made to owners or proper authority as to results of 
these inspections. 

Manpower: Present manpower consists of 29 permanent 
members, twenty-four of whom work a three platoon system 
at an average of 56 hours weekly. Four men work days only 

120 



on a staggered basis in order to accomplish more daytime 
protection due to the increased difficulty of obtaining 
call members who can give their time during the daylight 
hours . 

At present there are eighteen members on a call 
basis. 

Apparatus: At the Central Station is Engine 1, a 
1937,500 gallon per minute pumper, Engine 3, a 1952, 1000 
gallon per minute pumper, Engine 4, 1 1950 Ford Forest 
fire truck, a 1941 aerial ladder truck, a 1956 ambulance 
and a 1960 Chief's car. A rescue boat with trailer and a 
fire alarm trailer are also housed at the Central Station. 

At the Ballardvale station, a 1945, 500 gallon 
per minute pumper, a rescue boat and trailer are housed. 

Fire Alarm: Maintenance of this system is a day to 
day item with repairs and alterations dictated by the need. 
Each year more private institutions and industries are 
protecting their property automatically with the use of 
supervised detection and supervised sprinkler risks through 
our alarm system and a supervisory master fire alarm coded 
box on the property. 

The last of the public school buildings, namely, 
the Shawsheen School, is in the process of being partially 
fire detected and automatically supervised by such a type 
installation. 

Buildings: All painting and remodeling of any build- 
ing interior is done through the efforts of the on-duty 
members of the department. 

Two stations are maintained, -one at the corner 
of Andover Street and Clark Road in Ballardvale. Here 
there is one man on duty to drive Engine 2 to the scene of 
a fire which requires a response from this station. The 
Central station, located to the rear of the Town Hall, fac- 
ing Park Street, houses the major concentration of fire 
fighting equipment that the Town provides. 

Recommendations: Needless to say, the twenty-four 
year old Engine 1, a 1937, 500 gallon per minute pumper 
should be replaced. Yearly reports since 1957 will bear 
out the fact that this has been my opinion since that time. 

More manpower to put the Ballardvale Engine com- 
pany on a basis where the response to a fire covered by 
this unit would supply a driver, officer and a firefighter 
would answer to some degree the weak and costly maintenance 

121 



of this company in relation to the protection afforded. 

Conclusion: I wish to thank the Town Manager for his 
cooperation, the members of the Department for their effi- 
cient and faithful performance of duty, and the telephone 
operators of the Lawrence office who have intelligently 
and calmly passed along many messages of emergency. 



Respectfully submitted, 

Henry L. Hilton, Chief 
Andover Fire Department

Report of Civil Defense Agency 



The Civil Defense Agency has again had a very successful 
year. We operated on a budget of $2,500.00, and a reduc- 
tion in pay of $500.00 to the Director. 

This Agency has made several purchases of government 
surplus property at a great saving to the Town. 

We have increased our communications system to a total 
number of 27 ready mobile units plus one transiever unit 
which is self-sufficient. These units were used to great 
advantage during the last hurricane threat. This group is 
under the direction of Mr. Alex. Ritchie, Jr. 

The warden service is still active under the direction 
of Mr. Gordon Cannon. 

The reserve unit is now based at the old railroad sta- 
tion and it is under the direction of Mr. Charles Howe. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Lee Noyes , Director

CENTRAL MERRIMACK VALLEY PLANNING DISTRICT 

During I960, Planning and Renewal Associates 
delegated Mr. Robert Rowland to serve as consultant to 
the Commission. Mr. Rowland prepared, under the direc- 
tion of the Commission, application for federal planning 
assistance for a two year program. 

This planning program will establish requirements 
for future land use, with particular emphasis on the 
impact of the regional highway construction program, and 
will deal primarily with problems not easily solved by 
the individual communities of the district acting alone. 

Federal funds were made available in August. 
Planning and Renewal Associates are currently at work on 
the first phases of the planning program. 

The members of the Commission and Mr. Rowland 
participated in the Chamber of Commerce Seminar "The 
Next Ten Years in Greater Lawrence" held April 20, I960 
at Merrimack College. 

Mr. Robert Burke replaced Mr. James Barman as 
North Andover's representative on the Commission.

Report of the Director of Accounts 

June 3, I960 

To the Board of Selectmen 

Mr. Eugene A. Bernardin, Jr., Chairman 

Andover, Massachusetts 

Gentlemen: 

I submit herewith my report of an audit of the books and accounts of 
the town of Andover for the fiscal year 19$9, made in accordance with 
the provisions of Chapter UU, General Laws. This is in the form of 
a report made to me by Mr. William Schwartz, Assistant Director of 
Accounts. 

Very truly yours, 

Herman B. Dine 
Director of Accounts 



Mr. Herman B. Dine 

Director of Accounts 

Department of Corporations and Taxation 

State House, Boston 

Sir: 

As directed by you, I have made an audit of the books and accounts 
of the town of Andover for the fiscal year 1959, the following report 
being submitted thereon: 

The recorded financial transactions of the several departments re- 
ceiving or disbusing money for the town or committing bills for 
collection were examined, checked, and compared with the records of 
the town accountant and the town treasurer. 

The books and accounts in the town accountant's office were examined 
and checked in detail. The recorded receipts were checked with the 
treasurer's cash book and with the records of departmental payments 
to the treasurer, while the recorded disbusements were checked with 
the treasury warrants and with the records of payments by the 
treasurer. 

The appropriations and loan orders, as listed from the town clerk's 
records of town meeting votes, were checked with the accounts in the 
accountant's ledger. 

An analysis was made of the ledger accounts, a trial balance was 
drawn off proving the accounts to be in balance, the necessary 

135 



adjusting entries resulting from the audit were made, and a balance 
sheet, which is appended to this report, was prepared showing the 
financial condition of the town on December 31 1 1959* 

The books and accounts of the town treasurer were examined and 
checked. The receipts, as recorded, were analyzed and compared with 
the records of payments to the treasurer by the several departments 
and with other sources from which the town received money, while the 
recorded payments were compared with the warrants authorizing the 
treasurer to disburse town funds and with the accountant's books. 

The cash book was footed throughout for the period of the audit, and 
the cash balance on January 18, I960, was proved by reconciliation 
of the bank balances with statements furnished by the banks of de- 
posit, by examination of the savings bank book, the certificates of 
deposit, and the safekeeping receipts for treasury bills, and by 
actual count of the cash in the office. 

The payments on account of maturing debt and interest were checked 
with the amounts falling due and with the cancelled securities and 
coupons on file. The outstanding coupons were listed and reconciled 
with tro bank balance as shown by a statement furnished by the bank 
of deposit. 

The records of tax titles and tax possessions held by the town were 
ex -sained and checked in detail. The amounts transferred to the tax 
title account were compared with the collector's records and the 
accountant's books, while the recorded foreclosures were verified. 
The recorded redemptions were checked with the treasurer's cash book, 
and the tax titles and tax possessions on hand were listed, proved, 
and checked with the records at the Registry of Deeds. 

The securities and savings bank books representing the investment of 
the trust, investment, and retirement funds in the custody of the 
town treasurer and the treasurers of the trustees of the John Cornell, 
Punchard Free School, and Memorial Hall Library Funds, were examined 
and listed. The income was proved, the disbursements were verified, 
and all transactions and balances were reconciled with the accoun- 
tant's books* 

The records of payroll deductions on account of Federal and State 
taxes, purchase of savings bonds, group medical, hospital, and life 
insurance, and the United Fund were examined and reconciled with the 
treasurer's and the accountant's books. 

The books and accounts of the tax collector ware examined and checked 
in detail. The commitments of taxes, motor vehicle and trailer ex- 
cise, special assessments, and water liens were examined and compared 
with the warrants issued for their collection. The recorded collec- 
tions were checked with the payments to the treasurer and with the 
accountant's records, the abatements were compared with the 
assessors' records of abatements granted, and the outstanding 

136 



accounts were listed and proved with the controlling accounts in the 
accountant's ledger. 

It was necessary to do a considerable amount of detailed checking in 
order to prove the tax accounts, due to errors and omissions in post- 
ing. 

Further verification of the outstanding accounts was made by mailing 
notices to a number of persons whose names appeared on the books as 
owing money to the town, and from the replies received thereto it 
appears that the accounts, as listed, are correct. 

The records of dog and sporting licenses issued by the town clerk and 
of miscellaneous collections from permits, recording fees, etc., were 
examined and checked, the payments to the State and to the town 
treasurer being verified. 

The books and accounts in the water department were examined and 
checked in detail. An analysis was made of the charges, collections, 
liens added to taxes, etc. The recorded payments to the treasurer 
were compared with the treasurer's and the accountant's books, the 
outstanding accounts were listed, and the cash balance on January 18, 
I960 was proved by actual count. 

The records of cash receipts and of departmental accounts receivable 
of the sealer of weights and measures and the inspectors of buildings, 
plumbing, and wires, as well as of the police, fire, health, sewer, 
public library, and cemetery departments, and of all other departments 
collecting money for the town or committing bills for collection, were 
examined and checked. The payments to the treasurer were verified, 
the outstanding accounts were listed and proved, and the cash balances 
were verified by actual count of the cash on hand in the several de- 
partments. 

It is recommended that prompt action be taken to obtain settlement of 
the delinquent fire, sewer, and school department accounts. 

The surety bonds of the town officials who are required to furnish a 
bond for the faithful performance of their duties were examined and 
found to be in proper form. 

Appended to this report, in addition to the balance sheet, are tables 
showing reconciliations of the tax collector's, treasurer's, and town 
clerk's cash, summaries of the tax, motor vehicle and trailer excise, 
assessment, tax title, tax possession, departmental, and water 
accounts, as well as schedules showing the condition and transactions 
of the several tru«t, investment, and retirement funds.

RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITURES FOR THE 
YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, I960 



In accordance with Chapter I4.I, Section 6l, of the General 
Laws, I submit herewith my annual report for the year 
ending December 31, I960, 

A detailed statement of the receipts and their sources, 
and of the payments and the purposes therefor, follows. 
The condition of the various trust funds, as well as the 
Town of Andover Retirement Fund, sources of incomes and 
the amounts paid out are also set forth. A statement of 
the temporary loans, maturing debt and interest is in- 
cluded. 

A balance sheet, which is appended to this report, was 
prepared showing the assets and liabilities as of Decem- 
ber 31, I960. 

The State Accountants have complied with statutes and 
audited the Town books for the year ending December 31* 
1959. They are expected in the near future to audit the 
Town's accounts for I960. 

May I express my thanks for the co-operation accorded 
to me by the various Departments during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 



GEORGE C. NAPIER

Report Oi Town Manager 

To the Citizens of Andover: 

It is a pleasure to submit the third annual report under the 
Town Manager form of government and to report on the accomplish- 
ments of the past year. 

Citizens participation and cooperation with local government 
administration has brought forth a rewarding year for Andover's 
Town Manager form of government. A brief review of the reports 
by each department that follow in this booklet will explain the areas 
of development that your local officials have diligently worked to 
produce during the past year and will also indicate the wide variety 
of activities that local government must participate in to effectively 
coordinate community activities and to strive for improvement in all 
phases of local government service. 

The splendid cooperation of these departments and the keen 
interest on the part of all our citizens in their local government has 
made it possible for us to extend our municipal services in several 
areas; to improve our school system; and to reflect normal improve- 
ment in personnel benefits without any additional burden to the tax- 
payer. In this, we can all be proud. 

Probably the outstanding achievement for Andover was main- 
taining a stable tax rate at $26. 00 per thousand for the fourth straight 
year. In achieving this goal, our community has continued to re- 
ceive the benefits of increased services through improvements in 
personnel, school activities, recreation, fire and police services, 
library facilities, and other municipal services. This attainment 
has been possible through coordinated effort on the part of all our 
municipal officials to effect the best possible service to our community 
In this manner, our financing has been determined by annual increases 
in assessed valuation which has equalled approximately One Dollar 
on the tax rate each year. Our income from services rendered by the 
various town departments has continued to show an increase in revenue 
returns; State Aid projects for roads and schools have been developed 
to the fullest extent; and State Aid Grants have continued to increase. 
These phases of financing, coupled with definite controls exercised 
over our Three Million Dollar budget, have developed our financing to 
make possible a surplus in December I960 in the amount of $724,882. 
and in December 1961 in the amount of $634. 594. , thereby making it 
possible to put forth our major programs of capital expenditures from 
surplus funds. 



52 



Capital expenditures in the next few years will be a must as we 
plan the development and growth of our town, and we may not always 
be in a position to accumulate a surplus if the growth is not stimulated 
with a fair share of business and industrial income producing property 
In this endeavor, we should all assist our Industrial Development 
Commission in achieving the best attitude towards expansion of our 
business and industrial facilities in the areas zoned for this service. 

In the past few years, residential development has been the 
major source of physical growth in Andover and the current trend in 
subdivision development is on the increase. To accommodate this 
growth and to achieve a proper balance between residential and in- 
dustrial growth, the 1961 Town Meeting adopted a change in the 
Zoning By-Law to provide for specific industrial and commercial 
areas adjacent to the new highways - Route 93 and 495. Development 
of these latter areas would greatly enhance our community services. 

Reviewing the accomplishment of the past year, it may be noted 
that our Highway Department reached its highest performance in road 
construction with the completion of the newly constructed Dascomb 
Road and, in addition, with the completion of the resurfacing of many 
town streets with bituminous concrete surfacing, a practice initiated 
in I960 and which is now programmed as a yearly budget activity. 

Water Department operations have continued to expand and to 
accommodate the growth of this department, plans have been formu- 
lated and preliminary ground preparation work has been started for 
the construction of a new water shop building on Lewis St. This new 
facility will improve meter testing operations and provide for in- 
creased maintenance work. New equipment acquired by the Public 
Works Department during the past year included a combination 
backhoe and loader, the first digging unit owned by the town which now 
enables water, sewer and drainage work to be carried out by the 
various departments on a self-maintenance program. A new flexible 
sewer rodding machine was acquired during the year to improve main- 
tenance service to the sewer lines and to provide for a continuing 
preventive maintenance program. With an outlay of $61, 000. for 
capital improvement and water services, a new 12" main was con- 
structed on River St. in the Lowell Junction area for a distance of 
2, 500 feet. This will increase the water pressure and flow to the 
industrial area in Lowell Junction. Other water main construction 
included 750 ft. of 12" water main on Lovejoy Road; 6,000 ft. of 8" 
main on Locke St. ; and 300 ft. of 12" main on Sherbourne St. -this 
latter work to provide improved service to the Shawsheen Heights area. 



53 



The major sewer construction work was carried out on Love- 
joy Road with the construction of 2, 000 feet of main to provide sewer 
service to the new elementary school for this area. 

The town drainage program moved into the second phase of study 
with an engineering survey of Shawsheen Village and the southeast 
area of the town. The third phase of this work is being programmed 
for 1962. 

Rogers Brook, a major drainage outlet for the center of town, 
has been given considerable attention by the town officials in terms 
of providing a program for reconstruction which will provide a drain- 
age capacity for the entire center of the town based on a 25-year 
storm period. 

A major item of construction undertaken by the town during the 
year was the awarding of a contract to the Champy Construction 
Company on a low bid basis in the amount of $726, 595. to construct 
a new elementary school on Lovejoy Road. The foundation work for 
this building has already been constructed and the steel work is now 
in progress. It is expected that this school will be open by September 
of 1962. 

During the year, serious consideration was given to an Urban 
Renewal program under which Andover has been certified for Urban 
Renewal work. This program is continually under study by our town 
boards and officials in terms of arriving at a pattern of needs for the 
Town of Andover, particularly in the business district. 

The Andover League of Women Voters directed a coordinated 
effort during the year with a survey of the town needs to determine 
what improvements and growth would be desired by the community. 
The study was conducted on the basis of indicating to the town 
officials particular notes of interest regarding the feelings of Andover'si 
citizens about their community and what improvements in the way 
of services and facilities they desired. 

The personnel program for the Town of Andover was expanded 
during the year with the creation of three staff positions; the estab- 
lishment of an Engineering Department in the Public Works branch; 
the establishment of a classification of Recreation Director to plan 
and coordinate the expanding recreation program for the town; and the 
appointment of a deputy superintendent of trees to provide more de- 
tailed attention to forestry and conservation. 



54 



The Police Department continued its program of on-the-job 
training by participating in the State Police Training School program 
with two officers graduating from the course this year and three 
officers completing special courses in special identification work, 
special investigation work and one completing a course in F. B. I. 
School of police procedures. 

Provisions have been made to improve the Fire Department 
facilities with the purchase of a $27,000. pumper to be housed in 
the local Central Fire Station and the present unit now in use in that 
station being shifted to the Ballardvale sub-station. The preventive 
fire maintenance work by this department during the year was re- 
flected in the excellent rating maintained by the department and the 
low loss ratio. 

A highlight of the personnel program was the open house in- 
spection day conducted by the town employees during the latter part 
of June . 

During the year, the town has found it possible to call upon many 
of its citizens and representatives from industry and business to 
participate in programs and work projects to enhance Andover as a 
community. This cooperation has been excellent and the Board of 
Selectmen and the Town Manager extend their gratitude for the gener- 
ous assistance that has been given so willingly. 

The progress that has been made in 1961 has been the direct 
result of a coordinated effort between the town officials, the town 
employees, the various Boards and Committees, and the citizens, 
themselves . 

Looking ahead to 1962, it is expected that major consideration 
will be given to completing plans on Urban Renewal, reconstruction 
of Rogers Brook, and industrial development - the latter in accord- 
ance with the rezoning provided in 1961. 

It is expected that the construction of Route 495 through the 
center of West Andover and the Shawsheen Village area will initiate 
a move for commercial and industrial development along the newly 
created industrial zone adjacent to Route 93. 

In 1962, consideration will also be given to refuse and garbage 
disposal, to the expansion of town recreation areas, and to planning 
for public building construction. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Thomas E. Duff

THE LIBRARY OPENS ITS NEW WING 

After many frustrating delays, the library wing was 
eventually completed . Sunday afternoon, March 5, 1961 will 
have a special place on the library's calendar of outstand- 
ing events for on that day a large number of townspeople 
and library friends from surrounding communities Joined with 
the library Board, Staff and town officials in appropriate 
dedicatory exercises. 

The next day the Children's Room opened for business 
and has served an ever increasing number of children and 
adults ever since. 

March was designated as Library Month so that as many 
individuals and groups as possible might have guided tours 
of the new addition. Normal activities were resumed and 
special events scheduled including a morning coffee for 
Main Street business people and a talk, BOOKS, CHILDREN AND 
YOU, by Dr. Lorraine Tolman of Boston University, for the 
teachers in the elementary and Junior high schools. 

The first excitement may now have worn off a bit; 
children no longer remove their shoes as they did during 
the first few weeks which seemed to us at the time to ex- 
press, more than words could, their appreciation of the 
attractive, new quarters. However, even now it is a rare 
week that goes by without some delighted comment from a 
perennial user or visitor. 

Certainly the library staff has not gotten over its 
joy in working quarters which have more than fulfilled ex- 
pectations for the efficient handling of books and other 
materials from the time of their order through their prep- 
eration for use. The librarian, too, has literally found 
a "place in the sun" in a small office which besides its 
normal functions, can be used for small staff and committee 
meetings. 

We had some misgivings that our audio-visual room, 
space previously used for an inadequate office and work- 
room, might prove too small to be effective, but experience 
has shown them to be groundless. Actually, an amazing 
amount of activity has taken place in this small area, not 
necessarily all at once: selection of records, listening to 
records, occasional viewing of a film strip and the housing 
and loaning of our audio-visual materials. We can house 
something more than one thousand LP records and our collec- 
tion probably need not go beyond that number. 



64 



New building which involves alterations inevitably 
shows up other necessary repairs. This past year both the 
safety and comfort of the boiler room were improved by in- 
stallation of cinder block walls and an outside air vent. 
Nearby, the staff room, partitioned off the temporary base- 
ment storeroom some years ago, was repainted and the floor 
refinished. 

Also, part of a building project is landscaping and 
new planting. Around the new addition, spring bulbs, 
coralberry, periwinkle, fire thorn and other shrubs and 
plants will provide a progression of color. We plan this 
next year to plant the terraces with juniper to help hold 
the soil. 

A new length of iron fence with a facility for bicy- 
cles at the front of the building near the Children's Room 
door will, we hope, cut down on traffic through the library- 
grounds. 

An accident involving a glass floor in the Boston Pub- 
lic Library prompted us to get an engineering study of our 
mezzanine glass floor. Examination proved the floor to be 
safe. However, its replacement within five years is rec- 
ommended. Since we must undertake further expansion of 
the building very soon, we are glad that its replacement 
can be made part of that larger project. 

We shall probably place an article in the 1962 town 
warrant to secure funds for reappraisal of our present 
plans for expansion and for a study of the adequacy of our 
heating plant. Considerable town growth has taken place 
since our plans were drawn in 1954. We feel that they 
should be reviewed as to their adequacy for at least the 
next ten years. Any other method of expansion, if it 
seems promising, could be explored also, although we should 
not want to recommend any extension program which did not 
make sense in terms of efficient operation, proper rela- 
tionship of library staff, materials and users, and of 
architectural propriety. 

Because our adult quarters are the cause of increasing 
frustration, we can not push our building needs into the 
background, refreshing as it might be to place our emphasis 
somewhere else. 

An Andover resident who made his first visit to the 
library in his forty years of living here, after seeing 



65 



the lovely new Children's Room, said "But where Is your 
adult reading room?", yet he had started on his tour of 
the library Just there. People who use the adult library 
library constantly can understand his confusion since the 
one room doubles as a book service center and an area for 
browsing, reading and study. 

Since the new addition could not help but dramatize 
our important work with boys and girls, it is probably 
fitting that this report of library services and activi- 
ties should begin there. Circulation for the year under 
any circumstances would have shown an increase over i960 
since during the building many activities had had to be 
curtailed. Actually, however, the 1961 circulation repre- 
sents an all-time high in the use of the room. More liberal 
hours of room opening and the resumption of normal activi- 
ties also contributed to the gain. 

In preparation for opening in our new quarters the 
book collection was carefully examined for wear and abso- 
lescence, many standard titles were replaced, gaps were 
filled, and much adult material added. A considerable 
number of books were added to the collection during the 
year, but so great has been the demand in almost all areas 
and from every age group, that much more needs to be done. 

Much thought was given to the location of the books 
in the new room as to how they might be divided by subject 
and age level. Particularly helpful has been the division 
of fiction into one collection for Junior high and one for 
the middle grades. 

Depleted shelves in the areas most used for Junior 
high school assignments bespeak the increased use of the 
library by this age group. However, lack of books for 
the youngest suggest that we have gained in users here, 
too. Indications of this may be the large enrollment in 
our two pre- school groups to the point where registration 
has had to be closed since the groups are already too 
large for the children to get the most out of the program. 

With growth, too, comes need for additional staff, 
particularly at peak times. We hope this coming year to 
be able to attract a trained librarian who would serve two 
or three days a week as librarian of the new school on 
Love Joy Road and the rest of the time in our Children's 
Room. Whether the school's opening date is September 1962 
or January 1963, the basic school library collection must 
be ordered and prepared for use in the near future. 



66 






With the opening of the new school, we expect that 
the school library in the West Elementary School will re- 
turn to its original quarters. The only markedly inade- 
quate school library in terms of physical plant will be 
the Central Elementary. We hope that plans for more ade- 
quate housing will not be lost sight of in the press of 
demands for new school buildings. 

Cooperation with the schools continues to be close. 
There seems to be more communication between the library 
staff and the school faculties. Admittedly we may have 
taken the initiative, perhaps because the gain to us from 
such consultation was very obvious. However, the more we 
talk together, the more we realize how much we have in 
common. One tangible result has been the sending of class 
assignment slips to the public library, so that we can 
make more intelligent use of our resources. 

Since our last report, we can record Improvement in 
the conduct of young people using the adult library. 
Others have told us how much pleasanter the library is 
for reading and study than a year ago. 

We are sure, too, that the improved library atmosphere 
has meant more adult library users also. 

Although striking figures such as are available for 
our Children's Room are lacking, there is little doubt that 
in almost every way our adult department was a busier place 
than a year ago. 

Like the Children's Room, although book additions 
were up, there has never been a time when our book col- 
lection has so literally been "on the march. " 

The increase in our 1962 book budget will, we hope, 
not only offset the rise in book prices, but help us to 
strengthen our collections, notably in science and mathema- 
tics. Our reference room is filled to overflowing, yet we 
cannot afford not to buy essential publications simply be- 
cause of lack of room to put them. If one single aspect of 
our service is commented upon over any other, it is the 
excellence of our book -collection. We must see that this 
excellence is maintained. 

Perhaps we have space to comment briefly about adult 
books which are in most demand. This is based on a recent 
check of our reserve file and is rather a more quantitative 
than qualitative approach. 

Tt is not surprising, the power of advertising being 

hi 



what it is, that the twelve books in most demand here, 
with a few exceptions, bear striking likeness to the best 
seller list and to books in greatest demand as reported by- 
some of the large city libraries throughout the country. 

Two titles in heaviest demand were hold-overs from 
I960: "To Kill a Mocking Bird" and "The Rise and Fall of 
the Third Reich", both outstanding books. 

"Franny and Zooey" and "The Making of a President", 
high in demand here, were included in TIME magazine f s 
annual end of the year book round-up. 

Four titles were Andover ! s own particular choice: 
"The Game of Kings", "Pleasure by the Busload", "Rural 
Free", "The Small Room" and "Who Killed Society?" 

The other titles find us quite conformist: "The Edge 
of Sadness", "The Agony and the Ecstasy", "A Nation of - 
Sheep", and "Mila 18". Anyone heard to sniff in too much 
disparagement should examine best sellers of the past. 

Here are some of the requests for information: old 
tavern signs; books on radio-astronomy for teen agers; 
the building of grape arbors; the osculating habits of 
camels; export-import regulations for Portugal; the raising 
of earthworms; the "facts of life" for an eight year old 
boy; the way people react in time of disaster; the name of 
the Superintendent of Schools in Pasadena, California; the 
ten largest companies and their advertising agencies; 
cryogenics; an illustration for a commercial catalog; the 
origin of Twelfth Night. 

We managed to find answers for the larger number of 
questions put to us; few went entirely unanswered since we 
turn to community and other resources when we find our own 
inadequate. 

A public library has frequently been described as a 
community materials center - a description which becomes 
ever more apt as public libraries develop audio-visual col- 
lections. For some time this library has had recordings, 
now numbering some 700 albums, slides, film strips, and 
framed prints. With the addition of a tape recorder we 
hope to explore the possibilities of adding language tapes 
and recording the recollections of some of our older resi- 
dents. 

The gift to the library of nine microfilm reels of 
local historical documents by the Andover and North Andover 
Historical Societies and the probability that very soon, 
THE ANDOVER TOWNSMAN, for purposes of preservation, would 
be put on microfilm, spurred us to use money from the 

68 



Andover Evening Study Group to purchase a microfilm reader 
which could be used by the whole community. This year, we 
hope to add the microfilm edition of at least one outstand- 
ing newspaper. 

As to THE ANDOVER TOWNSMAN, we have made a budget re- 
quest for funds to defray one-naif the cost of microfilming 
the complete run. The other half would be generously 
shared by the present ownership of the paper. 

In keeping with modern trends in library administra- 
tion, two Brodac charging machines were installed as we 
mentioned in our last report. 

During this past year, a publication of some signi- 
ficance, based on a study made by the Library Technology 
Project financed by a foundation grant, has appeared and 
represents the first attempt objectively to set criteria 
for circulation control and to evaluate charging systems 
now in use in a variety of libraries. As a result, we 
shall be able to develop a more intelligent basis for eval- 
uation of our present system and its performance. At this 
time we recommend retention of the Brodac machines on a 
rental basis. There will be many new developments in the 
near future. If something better in terms of efficiency 
and economy evolves, we shall not hesitate to recommend a 
change . 

Library activities were so similar to those reported 
in other years that amplification is unnecessary. Briefly, 
we observed National Library Week witn the focus on our 
school libraries, held our November Open House after the 
lapse of a year, took part in a community observance of 
United Nations Day with a speaker on the theme AFRICA AND 
THE UNITED NATIONS. For this latter event we prepared a 
special list of available books, pamphlets and audio-visual 
materials. 

The opening of the tenth year of our Great Books 
group was postponed from the fall to early January when 
the group will decide on how it wishes to proceed. 

As usual, book exhibits were arranged around impor- 
tant topics and events: the White House Conference on the 
Aging, Mental Health, National Book Week, Africa in the 
news, Civil War facsimiles, to name a few. A series of 
craft and hobby displays featured the work of local crafts- 
men and collectors. 

Community concerns brought requests for material and 
special study shelves: the public school reading program, 
unaccepted streets, garbage and refuse collection, urban 
renewal, metropolitan areas. 



69 



Our Lincoln portrait still keeps the library in the 
national picture for the quarterly magazine, AMERICAN 
HERITAGE, featured it on its April 1961 cover. 

Although there were no major changes in library per- 
sonnel, the Library Board of Trustees saw one change with 
the resignation of Joseph Serio. Because of his long ser- 
vice and enthusiastic interest, we were sorry to have him 
go, but were happy to welcome Daniel Frishman in his place. 

There are no "new brooms" among the senior members of 
the staff so that it is with some surprise and considerable 
satisfaction that we report many requests from community 
groups for book talks and talks about the library and its 
resources. 

Miss Lane and Miss Putnam participated in a rather 
unusual ore-conference convention in Cleveland last July 
on the subject THE ADULT AND THE CHILD'S WORLD. Miss 
Putnam also took part in an adult Book Selection Institute 
at the Simmons College Library School and last June was 
elected Vice-President and President-Elect of the Massachu- 
setts Library Association. 

Once again individuals and groups were generous, both 
with their time and money. We particularly would like to 
note the following gifts: $200 from the Andover Evening 
Study Group, $115 from the Futterman Trust, plants and con- 
tainers from the Andover Junior Garden Club and the gift 
from a friend of a Japanese dogwood tree. 

We should like to close upon a note which we have 
struck many times before : the significance of the community 
public library in the dissemination of ideas, particularly 
in stress times like our own. 

A library's collection, rooted as it should be in the 
best that man has thought since men have recorded their 
ideas, brings stability and sanity to our personal worlds. 
Read history and we find that each age has despaired of 
itself. Ours is the first that can obliterate all life, 
but perhaps the first bow and arrow seemed as apocalyptic 
in its time. 

We have said before that the uniqueness of a library, 
public or private, is that it provides us with the oppor- 
tunity to bring the fragments of our scattered lives to- 
gether, it gives the opportunity to be ourselves. If it 
did nothing else it performs a task of the first magnitude. 



70 



This library which we have described may be in rela- 
tive terms small. Such is our Memorial Kail Library but 
it does not need to be "small" in its goals or in its ser- 
vice. 

If any goad were necessary to hold us steady and help 
us go forward, it would be the many friendly, generous 
comments from our library friends. To them, to members 
of the Library Board and staff, go much appreciation for 
help and support in 1961.

Board Oi Public Welfare 



During 1961 both Director Arthur W. Cole and Senior Clerk and 
Stenographer Miss Gladys Brainerd retired on June 31. The Board 
at this time wishes to express its gratitude and appreciation to them 
for their many years of loyal service. They were replaced by Mr. 
Paul MacMillan, Director, and Miss Irene McCarthy, Senior Clerk 
and Stenographer. Both Mr. MacMillan and Miss McCarthy are on 
Provisional Civil Service Appointment pending Civil Service ex- 
amination and appointment. 

Our Welfare Board, consisting of three members, is composed 
of Mr. Joseph Serio, Chairman, Mrs. B. Allen Rowland, and Mr. 
Thayer Warshaw. Mrs. Rowland was appointed in October 1961 to 
fill the vacancy created when Mrs. Pauline A. Mayo moved away 
from Andover. The Board expresses its appreciation for the ser- 
vice rendered by Mrs. Mayo. 

One new service category of Public Assistance was instituted by 
the Federal Government during 1961. This was Aid to Dependent 
Children of Unemployed Fathers. This is to set up an emergency 
assistance program for those families unemployed through no fault 
of their own, with no personal resources, and not covered by 
Employment Security benefits. In the first six months of this pro- 
gram we have had no applicants nor cases to administer. 

The case load for Old Age Assistance dropped from 92 cases on 
January 1, 1961 to 86 on December 31, 1961. A high count of 88 was 
recorded for November 1961. 

The rolls for Medical Assistance for the Aged increased from 11 
on January 1, 1961, to 16 on December 31, 1961. This program is 
designed to serve those 65 years of age or over not covered by 
medical insurance, whose income and personal property holdings 
are less than specified limits, and whose children are unable to 
pay medical costs out of their income over exemptions specified 
by law. This is the second year of administering this program in 
Massachusetts and an increase is anticipated based on the past 
year's experience. 

Aid to Dependent Children rolls stood at 5 on January 1, and at 
4 on December 31. A high count of 7 was recorded in August, 
September and October. This program is designed to maintain homes 
for children deprived of parental support for any cause, and whose 
other relatives are unable by law to care for them financially. The 

73 



goals of this program are to enable children to grow up with health 
and family values intact, and prepared to take their place in the 
Commonwealth as good citizens. 

The roll count of Disability Assistance increased from 3 on 
January 1, 1961, to 6 on December 31, 1961. This program is 
designed to assist those considered permanently and totally dis- 
abled to the point of being unable to earn their own livelihood. All 
efforts possible are expended to retrain those so disabled in order 
to return them to self-sustaining citizenship. Disability is deter- 
mined by a State Medical Review Board, and eligibility for such 
assistance is based on personal financial requirements set by law. 
Certain relatives are liable by law for full or partial support of 
such persons. 

General Relief rolls, for which the town is fully responsible, 
increased from 1 case on January 1 to 5 cases on December 31, 1961. 
the high count during the year was 5 cases assisting 8 persons in 
April. The aim of this program is to provide temporary assistance 
for those needy who are not eligible for any category in which the 
Federal Government participates. 

In 1961 we spent $67, 037. 33 out of an appropriation of $78, 450. 00 
$11,412.67 will be returned to the Town unexpended. Of the expended 
amount, the State will reimburse the Town for $39,723.97, which will 
revert to Free Cash Account, reducing the cost of Public Assistance 
to the Town to $27, 313. 36. To this we may add $2500. 00 as interest 
used from the Lucy Shaw Fund, making a total expenditure for the 
year of $29, 813. 36.

Annual Report Oi The 
Andover Housing Authority 

Nineteen Hundred and Sixty-one was the eleventh year of 
occupancy of the Veterans' Housing Project Andover 200-1 and the 
second full year of occupancy of the Housing for the Elderly, Project 
Andover 667-1 . 

Two members of the Andover Housing Authority were returned 
to the Board for five year terms. Harold E. Coleman was re- 
appointed by the State Housing Board to serve as State Member of the 
Board, and Thomas P. Eldred was re-elected by the Townspeople. 

A hearing was held in the office of the Chairman of the State 
Housing Board on May 4th, 1961. This meeting was attended by 
Messrs. Clinton F. Goodwin, David MacDonald, Jr., Thomas R. 
Wallace, Ernest N. Hall and James E. Manning, with Mr. Fredric S. 
O'Brien acting as legal counsel for the Authority. This hearing re- 
sulted in lowering the cost of Change Order No. 10 from $23, 036. 23 
to $13,339.66. This settlement, brought about through the efforts 
of the local Authority, made it possible to finance Elderly Project 
667-1 for the amount of $505, 000. 00 (at the interest rate of 1. 67% 
instead of $532, 000. 00 (turned down by the Authority last year) which 
could have resulted in a higher rent to elderly tenants. 

The elderly tenants take great pride in their flower gardens, 
which have been enlarged this year with the help of Mr. Robert 
Townsend. The Spade and Trowel Club take care of the flower plot 
adjacent to the parking area. This beautiful garden is a source of 
great enjoyment to the tenants and to all who pass through Chestnut 
Court. 

The 200-1 Project had very few maintenance problems this year. 
One new sidewalk was added and existing steps and sidewalks were 
repaired at a cost of $445. 00; boiler repairs, $145. 00; six new 
electric ranges ® $84.00 each; one new refrigerator, $114.00. A 
number of counter tops have been covered and more than a third of the 
interiors have been repainted by project labor. 

Project 200-1 maintenance problems to be corrected next year; 
one new sidewalk; new linoleum in a number of apartments; a number 
of new counter tops and storm doors. 

Mr. Robert Townsend, who superintends Project 667-1, has 
had very few maintenance problems this year. One contract, to 

75 



correct over-heating problem, amounted to $385. 00. 

The payment to the Town of Andover in lieu of taxes, for the 
year 1961, was $1,876.00. 

Reduction for Commonwealth Contribution for the year 1961, 
was $6, 972. 26. 

There are 56 apartments in the 200-1 Project: 34 two-bedroom 
units; 20 three-bedroom units; and 2 four-bedroom units. 

The established annual income limit, which is regulated by the 
State Housing Board, is: for families with one or less minor depend- 
ent, $4, 500. ; two minor dependents, $4, 700. ; three or more minor 
dependents, $4,900. 

The income allowed for continued occupancy, Project 200-1, is: 
for families with one or less minor dependent, $5,000.; two minor 
dependents, $5,200.; three minor dependents, $5,400.; an additional 
$200. for each minor dependent over three. 

The average monthly shelter rent is $50.00, Project 200-1. 
To this is added, for utilities, a flat charge of $17. 35, or $20. 50, 
or $23.20, depending on the size of unit occupied. 

Thirteen new families moved into Project 200-1 during the year 
and seven families moved to larger apartments with the project. 

The 667-1 Project is comprized of 40 one-bedroom units, a 
recreation hall and two laundry rooms which are equipped with coin- 
operated washers and dryers. 

The yearly income limits, Project 667-1, are: for two persons, 
65 years or older, $3,000.; one person, 65 years or older, $2,500. 
The average rent, including all utilities, garbage and trash collection, 
is $50. 00. 

The 667-1 Project had four new tenants this year. We have a 
large number of applications for Elderly Housing on file. The Auth- 
ority is conducting a survey to determine whether or not another 
Elderly Project is warranted.

Annual Report Of 
The Development And 
Industrial Commission 



During the year 1961, industrial prospect leads came to the 
attention of the Commission from several sources. All prospects 
were contacted promptly and conferences were held with the princi- 
pals whenever it seemed appropriate to do so. 

To date, two tracts of land have been acquired in the West 
Andover Industrial Zone by new owners but no buildings have been 
erected and no industry has announced its intention to build or lease. 

Work has been completed on a new "Fact Sheet" type of bro- 
chure that provides the essential information an industrial prospect 
will wish to examine before making a survey in depth of the community's 
potential for industrial plant location. Considerable source material 
has been assembled in the form of kits of information to support the 
basic brochure. This material is very comprehensive and will provide 
the most exacting industrial site selector with a wide range of detailed 
information about Andover, the Greater Lawrence Community, and 
the Commonwealth. These kits are available for distribution to 
serious industrial prospects through the office of the Town Manager. 

We have learned from first hand experience that it is very 
difficult to speed up the timetable for industrial development in a 
community due to the many factors beyond local control that influence 
and determine the speed at which development takes place. However, 
we continue to be very optimistic about Andover 's potential for sound 
industrial growth and we urge all citizens to bring to the attention of 
the Development and Industrial Commission any information they 
may have relative to potential industrial prospects.

ments, including bacteriological testing of utensils. 

All installations of private sewage disposal systems are inspected 
by a qualified Sanitary engineer. Many of the available land sites 
present some problems in regards to porosity of the soil and this 
service offers better protection for the home buyer. 

Other inspectional programs covering milk plants, dairy barns, 
milk trucks, bathing water, Boy Scout Camp, Girl Scout Camps, 
piggeries have been continued without change. 

Regulations establishing minimum Sanitation Standards for 
Housing for Farm Labor became effective on Nov. 1, I960. En- 
forcement of these new standards began in March of this year, and 
this resulted in more adequate housing for transient farm laborers. 

An X-ray Mobile Unit, sponsored by the Essex County TB Assn. 
was stationed at Glennie's Dairy Plant in No. Andover, and free 
chest X-rays were made available to Andover residents. In 1961 
there were two patients admitted to a T. B. Hospital from Andover. 
Field visits, including case findings, follow-up, and patch testing 
were made on all patients and contacts of communicable diseases. 

The licensing program of Day Nurseries was carried out, and 
visits were also made to crippled children, rheumatic fever patients, 
premature infants, Nursing Homes and Rest Homes. 

The annual rabies inoculation clinic was held on two successive 
Saturdays in April and a total of 425 dogs were inoculated. 

Biologic supplies are available to doctors on a 24 hr. basis.

Report Of The 
Conservation Commission I 

During the year 1961 the Conservation Commission has surveyed 
the town and its open areas. The Commission has listed in its files 
all town-owned land. This list is broken down into the town depart- 
ment which has jurisdiction over it and its particular use. Also 
listed are the holdings of the Andover Village Improvement Society, 
their locations, description and acreage. This listing includes also 
state -owned land, the Ward Reservation and Phillips Academy 
Sanctuary. 

Using this information the Commission has prepared a map, 
showing in various colors the locations of these open areas. This 
map is available for use by the various town boards. 

The Commission conducted a preliminary study of the Fish 
Brook area and has become familiar with this land area which is 
important to the future of the town. 

The Commission has not yet acquired any land. The Commission 
hopes during 1962 to purchase land under the available legislation. 

During the fall of 1961 Commission members attended an eight 
week seminar conducted by the Department of Natural Resources at 
Essex Agricultural School. Experts in the various fields of conser- 
vation lectured to the Commission members of Essex County towns.

Planning Board Report 



Following study of Andover's industrial zoning during I960, 
the Planning Board proposed a new industrial by-law for the town, 
which brought together in integrated form all the former separate 
sets of regulations for the various types of industrial districts. 
This amendment to the by-law passed Town Meeting. 

The Planning Board also sponsored several changes in 
industrial areas, including both reductions and additions. All 
but one of the proposed expansions and additions to the industrial 
districts were defeated by Town Meeting. 

Consultations between the Planning Board and the By-law 
Revision Committee continued at intervals throughout 1961. The 
By-law Revision Committee is now working on a fourth draft. 

The Planning Board, the Housing Authority and Urban Re- 
newal Director, James Franklin, have held several joint meetings 
regarding the proposed Urban Renewal project for the center of 
Andover. Certain aspects of the new plan are still under active 
consideration by both boards. 

Answers to the League of Women Voters' questionnaire 
regarding the present status and future development of Andover 
were received and tabulated during 1961. Results of this survey, 
in the preparation of which, the Planning Board and its consultant 
played a large part, are now available to all town officials. 

The Central Merrimack Valley Regional Planning District, of 
which Andover is a member, has been engaged actively in planning 
activities for the four -community region during 1961. Two major 
reports entitled "Development Trends" and "Land for Industry" 
have been prepared and published by the District's planning 
consultants and have been presented to interested persons, in- 
cluding the local planning boards, industrial development commis- 
sions, state representatives and local executive officials. Two 
further reports are being prepared for presentation early in 1962. 

Two subdivision plans using the provision of the Special 
Development Plans section of the by-law were submitted to the 
Planning Board during 1961. One plan was approved in September 
and the subdivision is currently under construction. The other is 
still pending. 



89 



During the spring, summer and fall of 1961, the Planning 
Board in cooperation with various local citizens whose businesses 
involve the use of commercial vehicles, prepared an amendment 
to the zoning by-law to be presented at the March, 1962 Town 
Meeting, regulating the parking of commercial vehicles in the 
town, particularly in residential districts. 

The Planning Board's Engineer, Mr. Ralph Preble, con- 
cluded this formal service to the board at the end of 1961, since the 
new Town Engineer, Mr. Thomas Flynn, will, in the future, act 
in the capacity of Planning Board Engineer. Mr. Preble has been 
most helpful in familiarizing Mr. Flynn with Planning Board work. 
Mr. Preble's last service to the Board was the preparation of an 
excellent colored zoning map of the Town, now on sale in the 
Planning Board office. 

A public hearing on several amendments to the Planning 
Board's Rules and Regulations (Governing subdivisions) was 
held in December, 1961. Final action by the Board is still pending. 

Mr. Roland Greeley, the Planning Board's consultant, re- 
signed in June of 1961, to the Board's extreme regret. Mr. 
Jack Schoop, of the same consulting firm of Adams, Howard 
and Greeley, replaced Mr. Greeley, and undertook, late in 1961, 
to prepare an Inventory of Capital Needs for the town, in 
cooperation with the Town Manager. 

In its administration of the Subdivision Control Law, the 
Planning Board, in 1961, endorsed 64 plans containing 107 lots 
under Form A (plans not requiring subdivision control procedure. ) 
Five subdivision plans with a total of 82 lots were submitted to the 
planning Board for consideration during 1961. Of these, four 
subdivisions with a total of 69 lots have been approved; one 
subdivision is still in the preliminary stage.

Weights And Measures 



The Department of Weights and Measures hereby submits its 
annual report relating to inspections, reweighings and sealing 
activities for the year ending December 31, 1961. 

A total of 3020 items were inspected for proper markings and 
also reweighed. 1492 items were found to be correct, 680 items 
were underweight and 848 items were overweight. 

The Department Sealed 749 weighing or measuring devices, 
adjusted 58, attached NOT SEALED labels on 7 units and Con- 
demned 2 units. 

Sealing fees, amounting to $370. 50, were turned over to the 
Town Treasurer, whose receipt I hold.

Land Acquisition Committee 

The Land Acquisition Committee has to its credit on the Town 
books, as of Dec 31, 1961, $80,928.95 from previous appropriations. 

Negotiations have been completed for the following: 
Noyes land for new school, Lovejoy Road $30, 000 

Boy Scout land and building, near Pomp's Pond 15,000 

Manning land, on Pomp's Pond 10, 000 

Total $55, 000 

None of this total has been paid to date, because titles have not 
yet been cleared; but this total has been earmarked for payment, 
which leaves a sum available for Committee use of $25,928.95. 

Land with building thereon on Lupine Road was investigated for 
possible use of the Dep't. of Public Works, but no action was taken 
and the parcel was subsequently sold to a private buyer. 

The Committee had been requested to buy two school sites in 
West Andover. However, a parcel of land already owned by the Town 
was found to be available for one of these sites, so only one site in 
West Andover is now requested. The Committee has also been re- 
quested to buy land to enlarge the present school site off South Main 
St. Additionally, the Committee has been requested to acquire the 
land of the Essex Sand and Gravel Co. , near Pomp's Pond, for a re- 
creational area, when the gravel shall have been removed. These 
three sites are under active consideration. 

A fire station site in West Andover, which has been requested, is 
now being investigated. No action has as yet been taken on the land 
adjacent to the Lewis St. Dep't. of Public Works buildings, nor for 
land for a refuse disposal area. 

The Committee will insert an article in the 1962 Town Warrant 
requesting a further appropriation, which, added to the sum already 
at its disposal, will be used for the acquirement of the parcels above 
mentioned.

Committee To Study The 
Town By-Laws 

During the last year this Committee has produced several 
further drafts of the proposed re -writing of the Town zoning by-law. 
The work continues to be closely correlated with the views and advice 
of the Planning Board. 

Several lengthy conferences with that Board were held during 
the spring, summer and fall, as well as with its planning consultant. 
The Committee has also met with the Board of Selectmen, the Town 
Manager and the Town counsel. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James J. St. Germain

VA Financial Reports 53 

Deaths during the year totaled 31 veterans, as listed below: 

Spanish War 2 

World War One 14 

World War Two 12 

Korean Campaign 3 

We have been fortunate that employment has been steady, and 
there have been few calls for aid due to lack of work. We have, 
however, a constant drain on our budget from our permanent cases, 
which tend to increase yearly. These include, for the most part, 
widows and dependent parents. 

In December of 1961, the Veteran Administration Contact Office 
in our area was closed. The closing of this office will increase our 
workload, as we will be called upon to process many more claims 
for compensation, pension, hospitalization, educational benefits, 
burial allowance and various VA Forms for the veterans of our 
town and their dependents. 



104 



We wish to thank all local veteran organizations, the American 
Red Cross, all church and Charitable organizations, the Board of 
Selectmen and the Town Manager for their cooperation and assist- 
ance to our office. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Francis P. Markey, Agent 
Veterans' Service Office

Report Oi Recreation Committee 

Five playgrounds operated this year with a marked increase in 
registration and daily attendance. The play areas were Central, 
Ballardvale, Indian Ridge, West Center and Shawsheen. The pro- 
gram consisted of the usual activities, handi-craft work, inter- 
playgrounds tournaments and sports, Annual Field Day at Central 
and the Annual Picnic at Canobie Lake, New Hampshire. 

Little League baseball enjoyed another most successful season, 
with nearly 500 boys, under the age of 13 participating. The officers 
and managers and coaches of this group deserve a fine vote of ap- 
preciation for the way in which they have operated this league for the 
past ten years. Last year a group of interested parents sought the 
Committee's help in providing a "junior league" for the Little League 
Alumni, and, although our help was almost entirely financial, we 
are proud to have had a hand in its organization. More than 100 boys, 
13 to 15, played in this league. The Senior, or Twilight league, 
maintained and supervised entirely by our department continues to 
provide the same high grade competition which has been evident 
since its inception in 1946. 

The Pony Football, for boys 10 to 13 and under 120 pounds, 
completed its second excellent season. Here again the Recreation 
Department provided the financing for the additional protective equip- 
ment but our thanks goes to the dedicated men who volunteered so 
many hours, daily, toward the coaching of these youngsters. Over 
100 boys were engaged in this activity. 

Perhaps the real heroes of the town were the men who left 
their warm beds before six o'clock on these frosty Saturday mornings 
to drive to the hockey rink at Phillips Academy to coach the junior 
hockey teams. This project, in its second year, is really catching 
the fancy of the young folks, and we are indeed indebted to the Trustee 
and Administration of Phillips Academy for their generosity in pro- 
viding us with the use of their excellent facilities. Over the years the 
help and cooperation of our friends "On the Hill" have been most heart 
warming. 

A year ago we had a request for financial assistance for a girls 
Softball team. The response this season was terrific, and it must 
truly be said that the girls most certainly did not suffer by comparison 
with the boys in the matter of ability and desire. We expect this 
phase of our program to develop extensively in the next two years. 



106 



Requests for funds for many varied types of recreational pro- 
grams have been coming before the Committee for the past three 
years or more and the volume and pressures are increasing. It has 
been the considered judgment of the members of our committee that 
the program should not be expanded and the budget substantially in- 
creased until such time as a full time director could be employed. 
Accordingly, such action was recommended last year and the Town 
Manager, Selectmen and Finance Committee, and ultimately the 
Town Meeting showed their confidence in us by approving the appro- 
priation of money for the position. 

Since last Spring, we have been assisting the Manager in the 
screening and interviewing of candidates. As this report is filed, 
we find that due to circumstances beyond our control, no director 
has been appointed. However, we feel confident that an appoint- 
ment will be made soon, and he will be able to take over the full 
time program which the Town deserves. 

Pomps Pond 

The hot dry weather of the past summer caused another record 
breaking attendance and registration at the municipal bathing beach 
at Pomps Pond. Swim classes for children over five years of age and 
for adults were conducted, and several life-saving courses were given 
during the season. The largest number of Red Cross Certificates in 
the history of the beach were given out for both activities. 

The picnic site was further extended as an additional area was 
clearedof brush. The practice of family picnics started several 
years ago has expanded tremendously in recent seasons. It is hoped 
that the Department will be able to use the adjoining land this coming 
season for the extension of the water front facilities, parking and 
general recreation area. The Land Acquisition Committee has 
negotiated for nearly 30 acres and the buildings thereon, fronting on 
the Pond, and it is hoped that the lawyers may be able to complete the 
transactions in order that the townspeople may be able to enjoy the 
benefits of the additional area next summer. 

The Committee is already planning for the long range develop- 
ment of this area to relieve the crowded conditions of the present 
waterfront, to extend the parking area and to extend the general 
recreation facilities, such as ball-fields and open play areas. 

As the program at Pomps Pond continues to grow in popularity 
the Committee realizes that within a relatively short time the town 
will be forced to increase the bath houses and other service facilities. 

107 



The concrete retaining wall project was extended this year and 
with the replacement of the wooden stairways next spring, the present 
beach will be secured. 

In looking ahead, Pomps Pond and the surrounding land bring 
us a challenge in developing this beautiful spot into a recreational 
center second to none. This will mean yearly expenditures over a 
long range period and a well thought out plan. 



The traditional Easter Candy Scramble was held on Holy Satur- 
day on the Park. In line with population expansion the number of 
youngsters seems to increase each succeeding year. As stated last 
year, the interest in Halloween parties had waned to such an extent 
that no money was provided in our budget this year for the activity. 
However, interest returned in some areas, and, although we were 
unable to assist this year, the item will be carried again in 1962. 
Meantime, we are indebted to the Junior Chamber of Commerce who 
stepped in and sponsored a parade and celebration at the playstead. 

The skating areas in Ballardvale and Central were flooded during! 
the season and we were able to provide about 16 days of skating. In 
addition the townspeople were welcomed at the facility at the Sacred 
Heart School field off Balmoral Street. 

We welcome the encouraging impetus which has been given to 
creation by so many groups in the community. Especially do we 
congratulate the Community Recreation Council for its success in 
arranging and putting into execution an adult evening recreation 
program which operates two mights weekly at the high school. 

Such enthusiastic and well-directed efforts cannot help but 
inure to the benefit of a well-rounded program. 

Our special thanks go to the Town Manager, the Public Works 
Dept. the Police and Fire Departments, the Playground and swimming 
beach supervisors and their staffs and to all the volunteers who gave 
so generously and unselfishly of their time and talents. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James D. Doherty, Chairman Durwood W. Moody

Department Of Public Works 



The Public Works Department maintains highways, sidewalks, 
public dump, street lighting, parks, and trees. The Department also 
services its own equipment, installs and supervises the Construction 
and maintenance of water and sewer mains, maintains equipment and 
supplies for the control of snow, ice, dutch elm disease and insect 
pest control. 

The personnel necessary to supervise and maintain these 
services are classified as follows. 

1 Engineer 

3 Superintendents 

1 Office Manager 

2 Clerks (Full Time) 
1 Clerk (Part Time) 

1 Engineering Aide (Part Time) 

3 Foremen 

h Working Foremen 

7 Heavy Equipment Operators 
U Tree Climbers 

6 Maintenance Men 

8 Truck Drivers 
11 Laborers 



Machine accounting was inaugurated on August 1, 1961 to 
prepare for future expansion of the water billing system. New 
printed name plates were inserted to replace some of the old time 
war plates for more efficient operation of the new addressograph 
system. These plate changes are now made in the Town Hall daily. 

New property maps have been coded to coincide with 
identical records of all Town Departments and have in addition 
every water installation plotted. 



109 



ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT 

It is with a great deal of pleasure that I submit the first 
report of the Engineering Department in five years. Although this 
department was in operation only three months in 1961, the area in 
which its potential could be fully realized were clearly defined. 

The excellent spirit of cooperation shown to this department 
by the other municipal agencies was most gratifying. The Public 
Works Office Manager, the Superintendents, the Planning Board, and 
all the other departments never failed to devote considerable amounts 
of time to acquainting me with Town procedures. I feel that this 
department is in a position to be of very valuable assistance to the 
other departments in matters relating to engineering practice. 

Most of the surveying and drafting equipment needed were pur- 
chased and only a few items remain to be obtained. The addition of 
these items and the expansion of the staff to include an engineering 
aide will permit the department to operate most effectively. 

I worked very closely with the Planning Board, learning its 
procedures and Rules and Regulations and the Zoning By-Laws. Plans 
for two proposed subdivisions were reviewed to determine the adequacy 
of utilities, and recommendations for acceptance or redesign of these 
utilities were made to the Board. These studies were made in close 
coordination with the Public Works Superintendents. Also, a number 
of new subdivisions were inspected to determine the amount of per- 
formance bond required for the satisfactory construction and install- 
ation of utilities. 

Plans were drawn of the easterly Interstate Route 93 - Lowell 
Street intersection and the area immediately adjacent thereto. A 
portion of the land of the intersection had recently been re-zoned 
by the Town for commercial use, but access to the land from the ad- 
jacent State-owned land was restricted to residential use. The 
plans were used by the Town officials in their request to the State 
for commercial access. 

Assistance was given to the Tree Superintendent by locating 
street lines to assign responsibility for hazardous or diseased 
trees; and a topographic survey was made of the Town dump for the 
Committee to Study the Cost of Municipal Collection of Garbage and 
Refuse to determine the volume of material that could be placed on 
the dump site.

Summer Street and High Street to Harding Street were resur- 
faced with one course type I Bituminous concrete. All catch basins 
and grates were raised to the proper heights. This project was done 
by the Highway Department. 

Dascomb Road, a distance of U,5>00 feet, was resurfaced with 
two course type I Bituminous concrete under Chapter 90 construction. 
All catch basins and drain pipe were new and added to the drainage 
system. 1,200 feet of this project was done by the Highway Depart- 
ment at a total cost of $5>U,000. 

Sidewalks were constructed of type D-13 Bituminous material 
on the following streets: Beacon Street, west side from West 
Elementary School to Chandler Road, a distance of 1,1^0 feet, Park 
Street, north side of Phinney's, a distance of 120 feet. Many of 
the cement sidewalks were repaired in Shawsheen Village, Main Street, 
Wolcott Avenue and Lowell Street. 

One catch basin was constructed on Clark Road and 200 f of 
12" pipe laid. One catch basin was constructed on Bannister Road, 
and UO 1 of 12" pipe laid. One catch basin was constructed on 
Sunset Rock Road and 30' of 8" pipe laid. One catch basin and one 
manhole was constructed on Linda Road and 120' of 12" pipe laid. 

One catch basin and manhole was constructed on Beacon Street, 
a distance of U00' of 12" pipe laid, to eliminate a drainage condi- 
tion from the West Elementary School. 

Sufficient cable and concrete post were purchased to erect 
720' of guard rail fencing on Dascomb Road. Replaced 31 cement 
posts on River Road, 20 posts on Lowell Street, 8 posts on High 
Street, 5 posts on Jenkins Road and 16 posts on Andover Street. 



Bridges 



The bridges under control of the Department of Public Works 
were inspected many times during the year, one on Stevens Street 
and one on Central Street. 



112 



Parks 

There are two regular size diamonds at the Central Playstead, 
one regular size diamond at Woburn Street Playground, six Little 
League Fields, two at Central, two at Woburn Street Playground, and 
two in the rear of the West Center School. 

Portable bleachers are erected at the Little League Field on 
the Woburn Street Playground and at the Central Little League Field, 
also portable bleachers are erected at the Central area for the 
football field. 

Fertilizer was applied in the Spring on both the Park and 
Playstead areas. These two areas were rolled by the Park Department. 

Report Of Tree, 
Moth And Dutch Elm Depts. 

The Tree Department planted 110 shade trees along public 
streets during 1961. A total of h$ flowering and evergreen trees 
and shrubs purchased by the School Department were set out on High 
School grounds. A diversified planting program was continued with 
several varieties being used, including Sugar and Norway Maples, 
Little Leaf Lindens, Thornless Locusts, Sweet Gums, Katsuras and 
Weeping Willows. 

Dutch Elm disease was diagnosed in 101 of the 115 public elms 
sampled in 1961. Of these 82 have been cut down and burned at the 
Town Dump. The remaining diseased trees will be removed before 
March prior to the emergence of elm bark beetles which are known 
carriers of this wide spread disease. A 100 foot telescopic crane 
was utilized in topping 20 dead and dangerous elms. A stump chipper 
was used to remove 6 large elm stumps. 

The Town received Dutch Elm assistance from the Mass. Dept. of 
Natural Resources in the removal and disposal of 50 dead elms. State 
and Town tree crews worked together to complete this project. Over 
150 dead and diseased elms were removed in 1961. 

A shade tree spray program was continued using approved in- 
secticides and application methods to control destructive insects 
and diseases. Foliar feeding was incorporated with the regular 
spraying. 



113 



Roadside mowing, brush cutting and chemical brush control 
was performed along rural roads, at intersections and dangerous 
corners. Chemical eradication of poison ivy was done along road- 
sides, at playgrounds and school areas. 

Regular department work of pruning, low limb removal, dead 
and dangerous tree removal, cavity work, bark tracing, utility wire 
and pole clearance supervision, and inspection were continued. 

During all snow and ice storms, Tree Department personnel 
worked sanding and salting, and plowing streets and sidewalks.

Water System 

During the year 1961 the capital expenditure program of dis- 
tribution improvement was continued adding 3650' of 12" C. L.C.I, 
pipe; 62 5 1 of 8" C. L.C.I, pipe; and 6 hydrants to the system. 

Under U°5 construction 350' of 8" pipe was placed on High 
Plain Road Bridge and 1100 ■ of 12" main on Haggetts Pond Road was 
relocated under the new highway. 

In placing a 60" drain across Lowell Street, both the 12" and 
16" force mains from Haggetts Pond to the center of Town were 
lowered. 

Most of the years work was in supervising new construction in 
subdivisions and general repairs and maintenance. 

Repairs and maintenance: 

10 broken mains were repaired 

V~> hydrants were replaced or repaired 

In connection with Chapter 90 Highway work, the services on Summer 
Street were renewed, and the water main on Dascomb Road was 
partially relaid. 

13U new services were connected. 

The number of meters in use was increased by l£0. 

65 older meters were repaired. 

35l special meter readings were taken in connection with property 

sales and special services, and over 1200 special calls have been 

tabulated. 

One motor at Haggetts Pond Pumping Station was reconditioned. 

The stilling basin north of Haggetts Pond protected the water 
supply satisfactorily during heavy runoff times. Quality improve- 
ment was evident during the year. The dike work has aided in 
quantity as well as quality.

SEWERAGE SYSTEM 

The Shawsheen River Relief Trunk Sewer was completed during 
196l. This is a major improvement to the main portion of the system 
and was needed to allow further connections to be made. 

Considerable expense was encountered in three failures in the 
outfall sewer. Problems still occur in actual destruction of chimney 
manholes. 

In connection with 1*95, plans are now complete for all sewer 
and water adjustments due to highway construction. 

The sewer rodding machine is used in a cleaning program. 

63 new services were connected to the system. More than 70 
sewer blocks were cleared. 

One pump at the Riverina Road Station was reconditioned.

Report Oi Trustees Oi J 

Spring Grove Cemetery I 

The Trustees of Spring Grove Cemetery submit their Annual Re- 
prt for the year 1961. 

During the year the Cemetery sold 23 new lots and had 65 inter- 
ments. From the sale of these lots and from the payment received 
from 5 additional lot holders who placed their lots under perpetual 
care a total of $4493. 00 was turned over to the Town Treasurer to 
be added to the Perpetual Care Fund. This fund now totals 
$137,862.00 and income in the amount of $4,971.00 which can be used 
for the cost of operating the Cemetery, was received in 1961. 

We also received $3, 738. 00 from the sale of new lots, interments, 
vault sales, foundations put in for monuments, and the care of lots 
not under perpetual care. The general receipts listed above together 
with the money received from investment income totalled $8,709.00. 
This was turned over to the Town Treasurer for the use of the Town, 
thereby reducing the actual expense of operating the Cemetery by 
that amount. Our 1961 appropriation was $25,063.00, but the actual 
cost to the Town was reduced to $16, 354. 00 for this reason. 

During 1961 our only major improvement was the addition of 756 
feet of hot-topped road. We now have a total of 5, 671 feet of per- 
manent road which has been installed since this program was started 
in 1950. We have had no maintenance expense at all on the roads so 
treated and the savings we have made in their yearly upkeep has been 
very substantial.

Fire Department 

The 1961 Report of the Fire Department is hereby submitted. 

Service: 

A total of 1630 calls for service of all types were answered. 
Nine false alarms were sounded. Mutual Aid responses to surround- 
ing municipalities amounted to 2. 

The estimated loss from fire of all types was approximately 
$135,672.00. This figure represents for the most part the actual 
loss settlement on property involved. Valuation for all buildings 
involved in fire was approximately $2, 158, 320. 00. 

Ambulance calls totaled six hundred and seventeen with non- 
residents billed for this service sixty three times. Of this number, 
fifty five were billed at $10. 00 each and eight at $25. 00 each, for a 
total of $750. 00, payable to the Town Treasurer. 

Fire Prevention: 

Inspections and the issuance of permits for the installation of 
fuel oil burning equipment amounted to 146. Monies received from 
these permits is turned over to the Town Treasurer the first of 
each month. Forty one Liquified Petroleum Gas Systems were in- 
stalled and inspected. Permits for the use of explosives were issued 
a total of nineteen times. More than 3300 permits for open-air fires 
were issued. Before any open-air fire is set by any individual, the 
law requires that a permit be obtained from the head of the fire de- 
partment. This law requires that the owner of the land upon which 
said fire is to be set obtain this permission and that the fire be in 
attendance until completely out. Incinerators (outside), if of a type 
acceptable to the Fire Chief and located as he deems advisable and 
protected by a spark arrestor, are considered as complying with the 
aforementioned law concerning open-air fires. 

Inspections of all public schools, private schools, mercantile, 
industrial and dwelling buildings (three or more families), of which 
we are aware, were carried out to the extent allowable by law and 
a report made to owners or other proper authority concerning the 
conditions existing at the time of the inspection. 

Personnel: 

There are twenty nine Permanent members and a call force of 
eighteen members. Permanent men work an average of fifty six 
hours per week. Four of these permanent men work a schedule of 
days only in order to supplement the day time coverage due to 

124 



inability of procuring call members during these hours. 

A pparatus: 

The Central Fire Station on Park Street garages two pumpers, 
an Aerial Ladder, A Forest Fire truck, an Ambulance, a Chief's 
car, a rescue boat and trailer and a fire alarm maintenance trailer, 
also, a Utility pick-up truck. 

The Ballardvale station garages one pumper and a rescue boat 
and trailer. 

Fire Alarm: 

A program of replacing old street boxes is still in progress. 
Constant testing and maintenance is required to keep the systems in 
operating condition. We maintain approximately sixty miles of wiring 
consisting of 48 miles of aerial wiring and 12 miles of underground. 



If this system is to be extended to include new subdivisions and 
other areas of the town, then I believe that a Signal Division should 
be created under a licensed electrician to maintain both the Fire and 
Police Signaling systems. In a town with an area the size of Andover 
(32 square miles), a system such as ours could be tremendous. We 
maintain our system now with off-duty help which is not always 
available if and when emergency maintenance is required. Climbing 
poles is no longer easy for the man on whom we rely for this service. 
Therefore, I suggest that efforts be made to acquire a fire alarm 
service truck with a manually-raised mounted ladder to alleviate the 
aerial work this man performs. Perhaps one could be procured 
from the Telephone or Electric Company when they are due for 
trade-in. Aside from new fire alarm boxes which would be supplied 
by the owners and installed on their property to supervise protection 
equipment within the building, I would advise that no more street 
boxes be installed to extend our present system. This advice is the 
result of the continued and increasing use of private home phones to 
report ordinary fires. Over 90% of our fire reports come in by 
telephone. 

RECOMMENDATIONS: The 1956 Ambulance is costing considerable 
money to keep in service. I would recommend that this unit be re- 
placed. The 1957 utility truck is due for replacement this year. 
This truck is the work horse of the department since it is used 
to answer fire alarms, for plowing snow, and for every other inci- 
dental use. My recommendations concerning the manning of the 
Ballardvale Station to afford more coverage on first alarm responses 
remain the same as last year. 

125 



CONCLUSION: I wish to thank the Town Manager for his cooperation, 
the members of the Department for their efficient and faithful per- 
formance of duty, and the telephone operators of the Lawrence office 
who have calmly passed along many messages of emergency from 
excited individuals. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Henry L. Hilton, Chief

In the year 1961 there were 298 reportable accidents in 
Andover. This is 19 more than the previous year. The accidents 
were as follows: 

Fatal 5 with 6 deaths (1 double fatal) 

Personal injury 126 

Property damage 153 

Pedestrian 10 

Bicycle -motor vehicle 4 

Of the six deaths on the highways this year, three of them 
occurred on Rte. 93. With regard to personal injury accidents, 
62 per cent occurred on 3 highways in town: 
Rte. 133 35 

Rte. 28 30 

Rte. 93 14 

Also 40 percent of the property damage accidents took place 
on the same 3 highways: 
Rte. 133 20 

Rte. 28 34 

Rte. 93 8 

During the year 617 motor vehicle violations were written 
up by the officers, and 4350 parking violation tags were issued. 

The police cars travelled a total of 200,467 miles during the 
year. 

The parking situation in the Shawsheen area still presents a 
problem. A recent survey showed a little over 300 vehicles still 
parked on the streets adjacent to the Raytheon plant. However, 
plans are underway for a new parking lot to be located across the 
railroad tracks from the plant, said lot to provide parking space 
for over 300 cars. Also there is land enough in that location for ex- 
pansion if necessary. If this new lot is used to capacity, the prob- 
lem of street parking would be eased considerably. The change from 
2-hour to 1-hour parking on some of the streets has eliminated some 
of the vehicles, but it also increased the supervision necessary to en 
force the new regulations. 

If more changes are contemplated, it is my opinion that an additional 
police officer will be necessary in order that proper enforcement 
be carried out. At the present time a cruiser ordinarily assigned 
to the West Andover section of town in addition to the Shawsheen 
area has to put too much time in the latter section. However, 

129 



instead of asking for an increase in personnel at this time, I 
would rather wait and see what effect the new parking lot has on 
the problem. 

No matter how many parking spaces are available in the 
parking lots, there are individuals who still park all day on the 
streets. Some of these violators receive between 30 and 60 
parking tags during the year. As long as the correct fines are 
paid, there is nothing that can be done to stop this practice. 
Under the law at the present time, these vehicles cannot be towed 
away for violation of the 1-hour or 2 -hour parking regulations. 
The so-called Towing Law, if enacted, will give the police 
department the right to tow these offenders off the streets. 

Respectfully submitted, 

David L. Nicoll 
Chief of Police

Report Of Civil Defense Agency 

Civil Defense in Massachusetts had a very successful year 
after a rather rocky start and a change in Directors at the State level 

There will be more and more demand on Civil Defense in the 
years to come and, in turn, the local agencies will have much 
organizing to do to meet State requirements. 

Our communications has expanded greatly under the direction 
of Mr. Alex Ritchie, Chief Radio Operator, and is second to none in 
the State. We may be very proud of this unit. 

Also, our Auxiliary Police group has grown considerably and 
is a unit of which we can be very proud. This unit is under the 
direction of Sergeant Robert Deyermond and Auxiliary Captain 
Winston Briggs. 

The Rescue Unit is operating on a 24-hour service basis under 
the Direction of Mr. Charles Howe. 

There are many other units being started to complete the Civil 
Defense program in this town. 

Under the appropriation of $2, 500. ($500. for salaries and 
$2,000. for expenses), the Civil Defense Agency has operated 
fairly well, but I think at this time it should be made clear that it 
would be well to be prepared to consider a larger appropriation for 
the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Lee E. Noyes, Director

School Building Committee 

The following chronological report will bring the activities of 
the School Building Committee for the year 1961 up to date: 

March 11 - Town appropriated $952, 575. 00 for a new school. 

May 16 - Edward P. Hall was selected as Clerk-of-the- 
Works. 

June 6 - Final approval of financial assistance received 
from the State. 

June 13 - Site preparation contract awarded to Gargulinski 
Brothers on their bid of $29, 348. 20. 

August 3 -All sub-bids received by Town Manager. 

August 10 - General contract awarded to Champy Construction 
Co., Inc. on their bid of $726, 595. 00. 

Sept. 7 - $865,000.00 School Project Bonds sold by the 
Town of Andover to finance school. 

Actual construction work began in late August and by the end of 
the year the project had proceeded to a point where both the architect 
and the contractor were confident that, barring unforeseen diffi- 
culties, the building would be ready for September 1962 occupancy. 
This was the original target date of the School Committee when they 
assigned this task to us and we have every confidence of achieving 
our objective.

Central Merrimack Valley 
Planning District 

The first phases of the work in the federally-assisted, two- 
year planning program initiated during I960 were accomplished 
during 1961, and the results were published in the form of reports 
to the Commission by its consultants, The Planning Services Group. 

The first report, entitled "Development Trends in the Central 
Merrimack Valley" provides a synthesis of information regarding 
the population, land use, and economic patterns in the four- 
community region, including analysis of recent trends and fore- 
seeable developments. 

This report was completed in May and formally presented at 
a joint meeting of the local Planning Boards of the four communities, 
representatives of the Greater Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, 
and the Greater Lawrence Industrial Development Commission. 

The second major report, entitled "Land for Industry", was 
published in October and presented at a well-attended luncheon 
meeting sponsored by the Greater Lawrence Chamber of Commerce. 
In summary, this industrial report: 

1. Analyzes and ranks each major potential industrial site 
in the area in terms of its value for industrial use. 

2. Analyzes and ranks each major category of manufacturing 
in terms of its growth prospects in the Greater Lawrence 
area. 

The Planning Services Group also prepared brief reports with 
recommendations on three specific items of regional concern: 

1. The projected regional vocational school 

2. The proposed regional incinerator 

3. The Future use of Den Rock Park 

Two additional major reports, one concerning transportation 
and one concerning natural resources and community facilities 
will be completed in 1962. 

The Commission accepted with regret the resignation of its 

first Chairman, Mr. Edward Force of Methuen. Mr. Donald A. 

Dow, appointed to fill the vacancy, is presently serving as Chairman. 

Mr. James Bannan, one of the original members of the Commission, 

was reappointed by North Andover to fill the vacancy left by the 

resignation of Mr. Robert Burke. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Virginia H. Hammond, Secretary

Salary Study Committee Report 

At the adjourned Town Meeting of March 22, 1961, it was 
"VOTED that the Moderator be instructed to appoint a committee 
to study the matter of salaries and expenses for elected and/or 
appointed officials, and to report to the next ANNUAL TOWN 
MEETING. " 

Under the Town Manager Charter, all remuneration and 
expenses of appointed Town Officials, Board Members, and 
employees is under the sole jurisdiction of the Town Manager, 
except the members of the Housing Authority who have their 
salaries authorized under Chapter 121., Section 260, of the General 
Laws - 2% of gross income, as amended, less subsidies. The 
Secretary of the Retirement Board is covered under Chapter 32, 
Section 20 - 4a, of the General Laws - minimum $200.00, and 
not more than $500. 00. 

We recommend the following salary and expenses for elected 
Town Officials: 

Budget 

a) Moderator -$25,00 per meeting $100. 00 

b) Selectmen -Chairman-$500. 00 per year 

-4 Members-$400. 00 per year 2100. 00 
-Travel, including out of State 150.00 
-Dues and memberships 100.00 

c) School Committee -None None 



$2450.00 



By tradition, Massachusetts School Boards have never been 
paid a salary. The above salaries are the same as these paid in 
I960, none were paid in 1961. Their payment should be considered 
an honorarium, a service to the Town on which a modest stipend 
has been set. 

This Committee wishes to thank the Secretary to the Town 
Manager for her very efficient cooperation in the compiling of 
data for our study. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George B. Westhaver, Chairman 
Norman L. Miller, Secretary 
Kenneth E. Holmes

Report Of The Director Of Accounts 



May 23, 1961 

To the Board of Selectmen 

Mr. Eugene A. Bernardin, Jr., Chairman 

Andover, Massachusetts 

Gentlemen: 

I submit herewith my report of an audit of the books and 
accounts of the Town of Andover for the fiscal year 19&0, 
made in accordance with the provisions of Chapter l\l±, 
General Laws. This is in the form of a report made to 
me by Mr. William Schwartz, Assistant Director of Ac- 
counts . 

Very truly yours, 

HERMAN B. DINE 
Director of Accounts 



Mr. Herman B. Dine 

Director of Accounts 

Department of Corporations and Taxation 

State House, Boston 

Sir: 

In accordance with your instructions, I have made an 
audit of the books and accounts of the Town of Andover 
for the fiscal year I960, and report thereon as follows: 

The financial transactions, as recorded on the books of 
the several departments receiving or disbursing money 
for the town or committing bills for collection, were 
examined, checked and verified by comparison with the 
records in the offices of the town accountant and the 
town treasurer. 



142 



The books and accounts in the town accountant's office 
were examined and checked. The general and appropria- 
tion ledger accounts were analyzed. The recorded re- 
ceipts and payments were checked with the treasurer's 
books and with the departmental records of payments to 
the treasurer, while the appropriations, transfers, and 
loan authorizations, as entered, were checked with the 
town clerk's records of town meeting votes and with the 
finance committee's records of transfers authorized from 
the reserve fund. 

The necessary adjusting entries resulting from the audit 
were made and a balance sheet, showing the financial con- 
dition of the town as of December 31> I960, was prepared 
and is appended to this report. 

The books and accounts of the town treasurer were exam- 
ined and checked in detail. The recorded receipts were 
analyzed and compared with the town accountant's records, 
with the records in the several departments in which 
money was collected for the town, and with other sources 
from which money was paid into the town treasury. The 
payments, as recorded, were checked with the warrants 
authorizing the treasurer to disburse town funds and with 
the town accountant's records. 

The cash balance on January 21, 196l was proved by recon- 
ciliation of the bank balances with statements furnished 
by the banks of deposit, by examination of the savings 
bank book, the certificates of deposit, and the safekeep- 
ing receipts for treasury bills, and by actual count of 
the cash in the office. 

The payments on account of maturing debt and interest 
were verified by comparison with the amounts falling due 
and checked with the cancelled securities and coupons on 
file. The amount on deposit for matured coupons was 
reconciled with a statement furnished by the depository. 

The records of tax titles and tax possessions held by 
the town were examined and listed, and all transactions 
pertaining thereto were verified, including a comparison 
with the records at the Registry of Deeds. 

The savings bank books and securities, representing the 
investment of the trust, investment and contributory 
retirement funds in the custody of the town treasurer 
and the treasurers of the trustees of the John Cornell 
Fund, the Punchard Free School Fund and the Memorial 
Hall Library Fund, were examined and listed. The income 

143 



was proved, and the disbursements and transfers to the 
town were verified. 

The deductions from employees* salaries for Federal and 
State taxes, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, group life in- 
surance, purchase of savings bonds, and for the United 
Fund were listed and checked with the treasurer's re- 
ceipts. The payments to the proper agencies and the 
refunds to individuals were verified, while the balances 
in the general treasury on December 31, I960 were proved. 

The assessors 1 records of abatements granted were recon- 
ciled with the collector's books and with the accountant's 
ledger. The assessors 1 warrants for the commitment of 
taxes, excise, and assessments were examined and checked 
with the detailed lists. The records of assessments 
apportioned and suspended were examined, while the appor- 
tioned and suspended assessments not due were listed and 
reconciled with the accountant's ledger accounts. 

The books and accounts of the tax collector were examined 
and checked. The taxes, excise, special assessments, 
and water liens outstanding according to the previous 
examination, as well as all subsequent commitments, were 
audited and checked with the assessors' warrants issued 
for their collection. The payments to the treasurer 
were verified, the recorded abatements were compared 
with the assessors' records of abatements granted, the 
transfers to the tax title account were proved, and the 
outstanding amounts were listed and reconciled with the 
respective controlling ledger accounts. 

It was again necessary to do a considerable amount of 
detailed checking in order to prove the tax accounts. 

It is recommended that a prompt settlement be obtained 
of the delinquent tax and excise accounts. 

The books and accounts of the collector of water charges 
were examined and checked in detail. The commitments 
were verified, the recorded collections were checked 
with the payments to the treasurer, the abatements were 
compared with the departmental records of abatements 
granted, and the outstanding accounts were listed and 
proved. 

The outstanding tax, excise, assessment, departmental 
and water accounts were further verified by mailing 
notices to a large number of persons whose names appeared 
on the books as owing money to the town, the replies 

144 



received thereto indicating that the outstanding ac- 
counts, as listed, are correct. 

The records of dog, sporting, and town licenses issued, 
as well as of miscellaneous permits and fees collected 
by the town clerk, were examined and checked, and the 
recorded payments to the State and to the town treasurer 
were verified. 

The records of departmental accounts receivable and mis- 
cellaneous receipts of the sealer of weights and meas- 
ures, and the inspectors of buildings, wires and plumb- 
ing, as well as of the police, fire, health, public 
works, school, library, and cemetery departments, and 
of all other departments collecting money for the town 
or committing bills for collection, were examined and 
checked. The payments to the treasurer were verified, 
the outstanding accounts were listed and proved, and 
the cash balances were verified by actual count of the 
cash on hand in the several departments. 

The surety bonds furnished by the several town officials 
for the faithful performance of their duties were exam- 
ined and found to be in proper form. 

In addition to the balance sheet, there are appended to 
this report tables showing reconciliations of the treas- 
urer's, tax collector's, and town clerk's cash, summar- 
ies of the tax, excise, assessment, tax title, tax 
possession, departmental, and water accounts, as well as 
schedules showing the condition and transactions of the 
several trust, investment, and retirement funds. 

While engaged in making the audit cooperation was re- 
ceived from all town officials, for which, on behalf 
of my assistants and for myself, I wish to express ap- 
preciation. 



Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM SCHWARTZ

Report Of Town Manager 

To the Citizens of Andover: 

The year 1962 has been a year of study and research on several major 
issues for our community and, for the most part, the decisions to be 
made on these programs will come, we trust, at our 1963 Town Meeting. 
The proposed construction of new municipal buildings and the Urban 
Renewal Study have been developed to a point where this problem can 
be voted on intelligently at the 1963 Town Meeting. Working in har- 
mony with these two studies, we have started on a ten year capital 
expenditure program which will serve to give us a basic financial 
direction for a planned growth of services and civic improvements 
with due consideration to the effect on the tax rate. The three year 
study of a Master Drainage Program for the center, south, and western 
sections of Andover has been completed and will also be presented for 
consideration at the forthcoming Town Meeting. 

The reports of each individual department which follow in this Annual 
Report explain in detail the services, work programs, and develop- 
ments that have demanded the coordinated efforts of all our employees, 
town boards and committees, and town officials in order to render the 
best service to our citizens. For this effort, we are all grateful 
and I wish to express to all the participants my thanks and apprecia- 
tion for a job well done. In Andover we are fortunate to have a 
reservoir of willing workers with the initiative and ability to be 
able to serve on the many projects that have become necessary with 
increased subdivision development and the resulting population growth 
which has placed increased demands on local government. With this 
team effort, we should be willing to accept the challenge of redevel- 
oping and reassembling our Center Core Area of the Business District. 

1962 has been another successful year for Andover in that we were able 
to maintain a $26.00 tax rate for the fifth straight year while con- 
tinuing to expand our employee benefits, construct a new 18-roora ele- 
mentary school, initiate garbage collection for the entire town, ex- 
tend our water main facilities, develop a Recreation Department and 
extend our recreation area facilities at Pomps Pond, improve our Fire 
Department apparatus, purchase a new ambulance, and extend improved 
services in many of our other departments. 

This stable pattern of growth should serve to make it possible for 
our comrminity to venture on a task of revitalizing our downtown busi- 
ness area and to accommodate a new municipal building program to 
properly coordinate our growing town activities, thus channeling new 
subdivision development traffic into a pattern of a Center Core Area. 
Our studies and surveys on the re-nse of land in the center of town 
tend to place the emphasis on upgrading our municipal facilities 
while, at the same time, developing a general plan for private enter- 
prise to use the authority of government to increase their services 



41 



to the community. Our voters will have an opportunity to choose the 
direction the Town of Andover will take to achieve the necessary re- 
vitalization of our downtown area at the forthcoming Town Meeting on 
March 9th when the question of Urban Renewal and new Municipal 
Building Facilities will be discussed. 

It would appear that the means to accomplish a successful program 
for our downtown area is now at our disposal and a united effort to 
develop these means can be achieved by a togetherness consisting of 
unity of purpose on the part of all our citizens whether they be 
people of business, education, industry or management. The scope 
of the proposed Urban Renewal Project and new Municipal Buildings 
requires a unified effort on the part of all our citizens. I be- 
lieve this program is financially possible, economically advisable 
and necessary for a land reassembly program. 

Respectfully submitted, 

THOMAS E. DUFF, TOWN MANAGER

THE LIBRARY AND THE FUTURE 

In a sense, the Memorial Hall Library stands at a 
kind of watershed. Solid as its achievements have been 
in the past, we suspect that even greater opportunities 
lie ahead. Decisions not yet made can, we believe, very 
much affect the kind of building expansion program which 
will be undertaken in 19&5, as well as the direction of 
the library's future services. Urban Renewal, Regional 
Library Service, the relationship of public library and 
public school libraries, will all have bearing on what is 
done during the next few years. 

We had hoped in this report to be able to report 
progress on our study of building expansion possibilities, 
the money for which was voted at the last town meeting. 
However, since the town has yet to act on Urban Renewal, 
it seemed wise to go slowly until it does. 

Meanwhile, we have examined the various proposals, 
particularly as they relate to the Essex Street area and 
the library site. As a result, we have recommended to the 
Selectmen that, if Urban Renewal is adopted by the town, 
the Adams, Howard and Greeley plan be considered the ulti- 
mate one for the following reasons: (1) that it brings 
the library nearer to the central shopping area, (2) pro- 
vides more parking, (3) eliminates a bad street crossing, 
(*0 provides a better setting for the library, and (5) 
better protects possible future library expansion. Since 
this would require the taking of more land by eminent 
domain, by a second renewal project or in some other way, 
we have pledged our support to the Selectmen to achieve 
this end. 

The mere existence of the capital expenditure plan, 
although not yet formally adopted, seems to bring the 
accomplishment of a more adequate building closer to real- 
ity. However, our building needs are so acute that if a 
central development plan is not forthcoming soon we shall 
have to develop plans, gambling on what the future face of 
the center will be like. 

In the meantime, some thought can be given to how 
large the addition should be and what it should contain 
in the way of service areas. Standards, of course, exist 
which will prove helpful in determining shelving capacity 
and seating accomodation. As we have already indicated 
a number of other considerations must be taken into account, 
too, and hopefully can be, before our plans must be in 
final form. 



51 



One of these considerations, regional library develop- 
ment, made great strides this past year with two regional 
library systems beginning operation in Massachusetts: the 
Central and the Western Library centers. The Eastern 
region, the largest of all and the one of which Andover 
will be a part, after much exploration of present and 
future needs and grass roots discussion, has its plans 
developed to the point where they will soon be submitted 
to the' Board of Library Commissioners, although it is 
doubtful, even if there are no delays, that the Eastern 
region could get into operation much before July 1, 1963. 

The Memorial Hall Library has been host to several of 
the planning meetings in our area. Miss Putnam has served 
as Chairman of the Northeast Sub-Regional group and is, 
also, a member-at-large of the Executive Committee of the 
Eastern Regional Advisory Council. 

The preliminary plan recommends that the Boston Public 
Library serve as the Regional center and that there be set 
up, in addition, four geographically well-located sub- 
regional centers and five sub-regional reference and re- 
search centers. In the tentative plan Andover has been 
selected as one of the geographical sub-regional centers. 
However, this is by no means final as it is conceivable 
that the Town of Andover might decline to serve or that, 
In the ultimate plan, other arrangements might be made. 

Another factor influencing library development will 
be the accelerated use of libraries in the next decade, 
particularly by high school and college students. Probably 
the Andover public school and public library should think 
cooperatively as to the expansion of school libraries in 
the future and as to the specific roles that public and 
school libraries will play in meeting the needs of this 
group. 

Going one step further, we can forsee a time when 
college libraries will be drawn into cooperative library 
systems and when specialized technical libraries, like 
Western Electric and Raytheon, may make their resources 
available in special instances, except of course for 
classified material, to mature readers of all ages. 

Let us now turn from the shape of things as they might 
be to the shape of things as they were in 1962. 

For the first time, but we hope not the last, the 
Andover Junior High School faculty" met at the library for 
one of its fall orientation workshops. We welcomed this 
opportunity to acquaint faculty members, old and new, with 
our book collections and services and to discuss with them 

52 



better ways of handling school assignments. 

Several educational magazines, among them "Arithmetic 
Teacher", "Educational Leadership", "Mathematics Teacher", 
"Science Teacher", "Social Education", were added this 
oast year. All educational periodicals are now housed on 
special racks in the 370' s. The "Education Index", simi- 
lar in function to the "Readers Guide", makes articles in 
these magazines much more easily located. 

At the request of the Curriculum Coordinator, materials 
were set aside on soecial shelves for use by a faculty com- 
mittee working on curriculum revision in the social studies 

A one sheet "Memo To Teachers", edited by Miss Manning, 
Assistant Librarian, and issued at irregular intervals, 
listing new books, audio-visual materials, programs and 
other pertinent information, is sent out to all junior and 
senior high school teachers. 

All school librarians, elementary and junior high, met 
at the Memorial Hall Library a number of times during the 
year to discuss matters of common interest. 

A^dover's libraries claimed the attention of a League 
of Women Voters 1 study unit. We gained a great deal from 
our many meetings with members of the group and expect thai 
some recommendations will come out of their exploration. 

1962 was a busy year as frequent library users know 
from first-hand. The circulation of books and other items 
exclusive of school library use, was up 10,361 over 1961. 
Although we do not keep statistics of books used in the 
library or of reference questions asked, we are certain 
that these, too, increased. 

What can you ask of a library? Actually almost any- 
thing can be asked of a library from requesting a course 
of reading, recommendation of a specific book or the answer 
to a particular question. Here are a few of the reasons 
why Andoverians sought out their library: to find archi- 
tectural plans for church buildings; the date of the first 
sales tax; accounts handled by the N. W. Aver Advertising 
Agency; a list of manufacturers of teaching machines; an- 
atomical measurements for a designer of boat seats; the 
location of Punto Fijo; the value of industrial research 
in the United States in I960; the origin of the name 
"Tobermory"; pictures of early cobblers 1 tools; how to tel! 
watermarks in oaoer; how to build a stable; information 
about the Wocdrow Wilson fellowship; a southern Christmas 
poem from the Civil War Period. 

53 



Just a few years ago, how many young people would 
have been seeking, as they are today, books on all phases 
of mathematics and science, cryogenics, aerodynamics, com- 
putors, for advanced material in history and literature? 
We are indeed impressed with the seriousness with which 
they go about completing their school assignments. Only a 
handful of young people'display library conduct which gives 
us any cause for concern. 

However, the library is infinitely more than a place 
to satisfy their school centered needs. Here young people 
can range freely over a wide area of knowledge, be exposed 
to art, music and imaginative literature, discover new in- 
terests and have continuing interests fortified. 

In 1961, as we noted in last year's report, the cir- 
culation in the Children's Room reached an all-time high 
which was natural enough considering that the newly ex- 
panded children's library had just been opened and would 
be expected to create interest and new use. This trend 
has continued and even accelerated this year with a cir- 
culation gain of something more than 6,000. 

One of the most appreciated activities among our 
children's services is the pre-school story hour, held 
at the library Wednesday mornings and always oversub- 
scribed. Storytelling is indeed a magic art but never 
more magical than on these mornings, as lively, noisy 
three-to-five year olds succumb to its suell. 

The program for boys and e:irls followed closely that 
of other years, although even the very familiar has its 
new asoects. Certainly in no other year could the summer 
reading theme have been the "Friendship 7" which provided 
its own kind of orbital flight into the kaleidoscopic 
world of books. There were, too, the usual first grade 
parties, all four of them!; the weekly story hours for 
older children whose enticing subjects ran from "Witches 
Brew", "Pumpkin Pie" to "Firecrackers"; the puppet pre- 
sentation of Cinderella; the popular annual Easter Egg 
Tree contest; a dramatization of the "Mad Hatter's Tea 
Party." 

More books and more library services for the elemen- 
tary schools are raoidly becoming necessities despite the 
very effective program which is already being carried on. 
The TV pilot urogram in the South Elementary School last 
year had the full cooperation of this library. A splendid 
tribute to the school library's "live" storytelling was 
the decision not to include the third grade TV storytelling 
program when the project was resumed this fall. 

54 



A new school library was opened this fall In the newly 
completed Sanborn School* Books for this school library, 
purchased out of regular budget funds and a special allot- 
ment of $2,000, were selected and prepared for use several 
months preceding the opening of school. The book collec- 
tion is, of course, small and must be increased as rapidly 
as possible to meet already demonstrated demand. 

Unfortunately we were unable to fill our position for 
an Assistant in Children's Work, who would have divided her 
time between the school program and the Children's Room. 
Two candidates, both qualified, turned us down; one, be- 
cause of salary, the other because of a last minute need 
to be nearer Boston. However, the school library program 
did not need to be postponed as we were fortunate to find 
someone willing to give the school library two days a week. 

Attention was centered this past year on improving 
our collections. 

Six new prints, representing artists as different as 
Hassan and Kandinsky, were added to our loan print collec- 
tion which continues its popularity with many library users. 

The microfilm edition of the Christian Science Monitor 
has been added to the library. How much farther we shall 
pro in this direction will depend upon use. 

The book collections in science and mathematics were 
greatly strengthened; for this we had the help of subject 
specialists. Special book lists of the new material have 
been prepared and book displays arranged durins: National 
Education Week, to which Andover teachers were especially 
invited. 

An important new pamphlet series "Reading for an Aere 
of Change" was issued this year by the American Library 
Association in cooperation with the Public Affairs Com- 
mittee, a noteworthy event since it provides authoritative 
reading guidance in several important subject areas. Of 
special interest is the pamphlet on "The Contemporary Arts", 
written by Bartlett Hayes of our own community. Other 
pamphlets already published or about to be include "Space 
Science", "Freedom of the Mind" , "The Expanding Population 
in a Shrinking World." 

It would be an unusual year which did not see changes 
in Board and Staff make-up. This was not that year. 
William N. Perry resigned as a Trustee, a loss for us, for 
in his many years as a member of the Board, the library had 
benefited greatly from his wise and energetic support. We 
look forward to becoming better acquainted with Andrew A 



• . 



55 



Caffrey, who has been appointed to the Board in his place. 
We shall miss, too, the' warm friendliness of Gertrude 3. 
Hart, a staff member for ten years, who left at the end 
of the year because of her husband's retirement and her 
desire to join him in his new freedom. 

We could not heir) but take satisfaction, basking as 
it were in reflected glory, at the recognition and high 
praise accorded Miss Lane for her original paper "Rachel 
Field and Her Contribution to American Children's Litera- 
ture", given at the New England Library Aspociation this 
past October as part of the annual Hewins lectureship. 
Her paper will be included in a volume of Hewins lectures 
to be published soon by the Horn Book Press. 

Miss Putnam has enjoyed thoroughly her year as Program 
Chairman and later President of the Massachusetts Library 
Association, although she must admit to an occasional feel- 
ing of some fragmentation as many areas of library concern 
clamored for attention. It has, too, been a privilege to 
serve a professional association as it attempts to improve 
library standards, heln protect freedom of inquiry, meet 
the personnel shortage through more imaginative recruit- 
ment, support more realistic professional salaries and to 
bring better library service to the state. 

Although we have no formal Friends of the Library 
organization, we do have "Friends of the Library", many of 
them, and we should like to take this opoortunity to thank 
them for the diverse ways in which they have shown their 
appreciation of the Memorial Hall Library. Some tangible 
expressions (although we cherish the intangible as well) 
include: The Andover Garden Club's gift of six spring 
blooming purple crab ar^ple trees; yellow marigolds planted 
around the flagpole by Girl Scouts celebrating their 
jubilee year; the Frederick 3radley ! s gift of ^150, in 
memory of David, which was used to buy records for children; 
the Andover Evening Study Program check for ^200; the dona- 
tion by Miss Alice Jenkins to our historical collection of 
the Civil War diaries of her father, E. Kendall Jenkins, a 
former Library Trustee. 

The Andover Townsman deserves a special thank-you 
for its generous coverage of library affairs and especially 
for the series of pictures featuring many of the library's 
activities which ar^eared during National Library Week. 

May we draw this report to an end with a hearty salute 
to members of the Library So^rd and Librarv Staff for 
guidance, devotion and plain hard work.

Board Of Public Welfare 



On November 14 the Board of Welfare regretfully accepted 
the resignation of Chairman Joseph Serio. At this time the Board 
wishes to express its appreciation of Mr. Serio's long and sincere 
service. 

At the end of the year the Town Manager is considering names 
for an appointment to the Welfare Board. 

1962 statistics are as follows: 

The Old Age Assistance rolls opened on January 1, 1962 
with 86 recipients, closed 1962 with 82. High case count for the 
year was 87 recipients. 

Medical Assistance for the Aged opened 1962 with 17 re- 
cipients, closed the year with 22. High count for the year was 23. 

Aid to Dependent Children opened 1962 with 5 cases involving 
13 persons. 1962 closed with 7 cases involving 21 persons. This 
is high for the year. 

Disability Assistance opened 1962 with 6 recipients and 
closed 1962 with 10. This was high for the year. 

General Relief (all Town expense) opened 1962 with 1 re- 
cipient and closed the year with 1. High for the year was 4 re- 
cipients, involving 20 persons. 

The total amount spent during the year for aid to needy 
persons was $157, 396. 00. Of this amount the Federal Government 
reimbursed the Town by $87,341.44. Of the balance, the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts reimbursed the Town by $44,936.20, which 
went into free cash. The net cost to the Town therefore for its 
Welfare program was $19, 117.91. The total Town 1962 appropriation 
of $69,054. 11 plus $1000.00 from the Lucy Shaw Fund was exhausted. 
$4760. 00 was recovered under repayment plans. 

No new programs were initiated, although new Federal re- 
imbursement formulas were incorporated with the expansion of Aid 
to Families with Dependent Children programming. 



58 



Director Paul MacMillan was appointed permanently to the 
position in March. The Director and the Senior Clerk were involved 
with in-service training programs initiated by the State Department 
to enhance the services offered by the local Department.

Annual Report Of The 
Andover Housing Authority 

The year Nineteen Hundred and Sixty- Two was the twelfth 
year of occupancy of the Veterans' Housing Project Andover 200-1, 
and the third year of occupancy of the Housing for the Elderly, 
Project Andover 667-1. 

With the exception of the Urban Renewal Program, the 
Authority was concerned mostly with maintenance and repair 
problems. Repairs to concrete steps were done under contract 
at a cost of $225. Repairs to boiler, also done under contract, 
$425. Repairs to hot water and steam systems were the major 
problems . 

Some of the anticipated problems for the coming year are: 
exterior painting, Projects 200-1 and 667-1; new linoleum in a 
number of kitchens and bathrooms; a new hot water tank in one of 
the buildings; a number of new locks and continued maintenance of 
sidewalks and heating system. 

VETERANS' PROJECT 



Payment to the Town of Andover, in lieu of taxes, for the 
year 1962 was $1,876.00. 

The Commonwealth Contribution for the year 1962 was 
$7,735. 87. 

There are 56 units in this project, presently housing 263 
persons. The average monthly rental is $53. 50, plus an average 
monthly utility charge of $18. 68. 

The established annual income limit, regulated by the State 
Housing Board, is: for families with one or less minor dependents, 
$4,500; two minor dependents, $4,700; three or more minor de- 
pendents, $4,900. 

Income allowed for continued occupancy; for families with one 
or less minor dependents, $5,000; Two minor dependents, $5,200; 
three or more minor dependents, $5,400. 

Shelter rent is based on total family income. Families with 
one child, 18%; two children, 16%; three children 14%; for each 



60 



dependent child in excess of three, $200. is deducted from total 
family income. 

Seven new families moved into the project during the year. 

HOUSING FOR THE ELDERLY 

The Commonwealth Contribution for the year 1962 was $12, 
625. 00. 

This project is comprised of 40 dwelling units, a recreation 
hall and 2 laundry rooms, and is presently housing 49 persons. The 
average monthly rental, including all utilities, is $50.00. 

The yearly income limits for admission are; for one person, 
65 years or older, $2,500; two persons, 65 years or older, $3,000. 

The yearly income limits for continued occupancy are: for one 
person, $3,125; two persons, $3,750. 

One new tenant was admitted to the project this year. 

Early this year the Authority conducted a survey to determine 
whether or not sufficient need existed for a second Elderly Housing 
Project. At that time, 27 applications were on file, but the response 
was such that the Authority felt the need did not exist. However, 
since that time, the number of applications has increased to 40, and 
the Authority has had many telephone calls from elderly people in 
need of housing and desiring to file application if and when another 
project is definitely underway. 

URBAN RENEWAL 

The Andover Housing Authority, Office of Urban Renewal, 
reports the following, in summary, on Urban Renewal activities. 

In January 1962, James W. Franklin, Director of Urban 
Renewal, resigned. 

On February 18, 1962, Ernest N. Hall was appointed Director. 
At this time, a concentrated effort was made to obtain approval of 
the Part I - Application for Loan and Grant, and in June, this 
approval was received from the Federal Government. 



61 



A great deal of time was spent in presenting to all Town 
Boards, Town Manager and the general public, all project infor- 
mation, project costs and general information that was available. 
This was accomplished by numerous meetings with the Town Boards, 
groups of interested citizens, civic organizations, local merchants 
and businessmen, and by distributing over 5, 000 brochures to the 
voters of Andover. 

As a result of the various meetings, and also surveys made 
by the Planning Board and a group of local merchants, it became 
apparent that some changes in the program were necessary. The 
Plan was, therefore, revised to eliminate a portion of land set 
aside for Elderly Housing and returned to commercial use. The 
placing of three additional commercial properties as non-acquired 
parcels, will result in a saving to the Town of their proportionate 
share of the project costs. 

The Urban Renewal Program will be presented to the voters 
of the Town, for their approval, at the Annual Town Meeting in 
March 1963. 

The members of the Andover Housing Authority, as of Decem- 
ber 31, 1962, are as follows: 

David MacDonald, Jr. , Chairman 

Harold E. Coleman, Vice Chairman 

Thomas R. Wallace, Treasurer 

George A. Noury, Assistant Treasurer 

Thomas P. Eldred, Assistant Secretary 

James E. Manning, Secretary and Executive Director 

Ernest N. Hall, Director of Urban Renewal 

A balance sheet reporting the assets and liabilities of Projects 
200-1 and 667-1, and the "Central Andover" Urban Renewal Pro- 
gram, for the period ending December 31, 1962, is attached.

Annual Report Of 
The Development And 
Industrial Commission 



During the year 1962 there has been very little growth of new 
industries along Interstate 93 within the Commonwealth. In an effort 
to stimulate this industrially zoned area of our Town, the Commis- 
ion has recommended to the Town Manager and Selectmen that two 
signs be erected on the North and South ends of Route 93 in Andover, 
indicating that approximately two miles of frontage is available for 
commercial buildings on both sides of the highway. As of December 
31, 1962, the Town Manager has issued a requisition for the expendi- 
ture required for these signs and it is expected that they will be 
erected prior to Town Meeting, if negotiations are then completed 
with the land owners. 

It is hoped that Interstate 495 will be ultimately completed to 
the extent that it will aid our efforts to encourage new businesses to 
locate in our properly zoned areas, but the progress on this route 
continues to meet with frustrating delays. During the year the 
Commission met with representatives from two of the States most 
prominent industrial realty firms to explore ways and means that 
might be available to us to promote business growth in Andover. 
These meetings assured us at least that there was little more that 
we could do as a Commission to attract business. 

Industrial Development is one of the most competitive areas 
of activity that faces any Town and there is little that can be done 
to speed up the process unless the Town Fathers wish to recommend 
the appropriation of a sufficient amount of money to hire a full time 
professionally trained person to accomplish this. The Commission 
does not believe this would be a wise move at this time. Instead we 
will continue to work closely with the Town Manager and do every- 
thing we can with our very limited budget, to stimulate compatible 
industrial growth in our Town and diligently follow up on any and 
all prospects that are brought to our attention.

Municipal garbage collection was instituted in Andover in 
September and with the continued co-operation of the townspeople, 
this will prove to be a much needed community service. 

This year the number of new homes requiring individual sew- 
age facilities has been greater than ever before. All these systems 
are carefully reviewed and inspected by a representative of the 
Health Department before a permit for use is issued. 

An X-ray Mobile Unit, sponsored by the Essex County TB 
Association was stationed at Glennie's Dairy Plant in North Andover, 
and free chest x-rays were made available to all Andover food- 
handlers . 

Approximately 2600 children received Type I and Type III 
Sabin oral polio vaccine at public clinics held in Central School Gym 
in April and June. The vaccine was given to the local Boards by the 
State Department of Public Health, and the program was carried out 
with the assistance of 50 volunteers. 

Other inspectional programs covering food establishments, 
milk plants, dairy barns, milk trucks, bathing water, Scout Camps, 
piggeries, housing for transient laborers, nursing homes, Rest 
Homes, and Day Nurseries, have continued on without change. All 
complaints were investigated and processed. 

Field visits, including case findings were made on all patients 
and contacts of communicable diseases. Premature Babies and 
Crippled Children program was carried on as usual. 

The annual rabies clinic was held on two successive Saturdays 
in April and a total of 425 dogs were inoculated.

Report Of The 
Conservation Commission 



The Conservation Commission during the year 1962 con- 
tinued its study of open lands in the Town of Andover . 
The information gained by this study has given us some 
encouraging leads towards the acquisition of some Conser- 
vation Areas. Several letters were sent to land owners 
and at the year's end, the Commission was negotiating for 
the purchase of one of these parcels. 

In June of 1962, the Commission met with members of the 
Central Merrimack Valley District Planning Board and dis- 
cussed the proposed Open Space Plan. The Commission 
recommended that certain additional areas be included, and 
these areas are now incorporated in the published plan. 

During the year, the Commission supported Conservation 
Legislation by writing letters to both local Representa- 
tives and the Chairmen of National Committees.

[ Planning Board Report 

Urban Renewal was the most urgent planning activity engaging 
the attention of the Planning Board in 1962. By special grant of 
funds from the Finance Committee, the Board was able to engage a 
highly skilled specialist, Mr. Carl Steinitz, for six weeks during the 
* summer to prepare alternative schemes of development for the entire 
business district, in which the Urban Renewal project area is included 
These schematic plans are designed to provide a basis for evaluating 
actual layouts and architectural plans in the future, and together with 
the accompanying written report, contain many stimulating and pro- 
gressive ideas for Andover's development. 

The Central Merrimack Valley Regional Planning District com- 
pleted its two-year development plan for the four-community region 
in 1962, with the publication of three further reports, "Transportation 
Prospects", "Regional Resources and Facilities" and "Future Devel- 
opment". It is expected that new federal aid will be forthcoming in 
1963 to supplement the regional funds and enable the District to em- 
ploy a virtually full-time professional planning staff, to attempt im- 
plementation of the previous plans and to assist the four munici- 
palities with any planning problems of a regional nature. 

Further refinement and improvement of the Rules and Regu- 
lations governing subdivision control in Andover was made by the 
Planning Board. Some changes have been adopted; some are still 
pending. 

Mr. Jack Schoop of Adams, Howard and Greeley continued his 
outstanding service to Andover as the Planning Board's consultant. 
In addition to his work in connection with the Urban Renewal project, 
he was called upon for advice regarding industrial zoning problems, 
future school planning and capital expenditures. Working with the 
Town Manager and heads of the various town departments, he pre- 
pared a Capital Improvement Program for the years 1963 through 
1970. Further details regarding this program will be found in the 
Town Manager's report. 

The Planning Board initiated in 1962 the practice of sending a 
Planning Board delegate to all public hearings of the Board of Appeals. 
Increasingly complex zoning laws, especially in regard to industrial, 
commercial, multiple residential uses, require such close cooper- 
ation between the two boards. 



75 



The By-law Revision Committee and the Planning Board have 
agreed upon the essentials of the proposed new Zoning By-law. 
Finished draft should be ready for presentation to the voters in 1963. 

The Planning Board's Chairman, Harold T. King, was elected 
director of newly reactivated Region 4, including Amesbury through 
Westford, of the Massachusetts Federation of Planning Boards. The 
first, (and highly successful) meeting of the region's Planning Boards 
was held in Andover in October, concerning the Planning Board's 
problems in the administration of the Subdivision Control Law. 

Andover's pioneer zoning provision for Special Development 
Plans (so-called "cluster" zoning) attracted widespread attention in 
1962. Many inquiries from other communities were received re- 
garding it. Mr. King spoke on the subject at a state-wide meeting 
of the Home Builders' Association. Even the federal government 
has shown interest in Andover's By-law, and sent a representative 
to examine the various subdivision plans which take advantage of 
this By-law. 

Most of the subdivision plans submitted in 1962, six (6) out of 
sixteen (16), made use of the Special Development Plans section of 
the By-law, usually with resultant savings to the developer and ad- 
vantages to the Town, both aesthetic and economic. The Andover 
Village Improvement Society has obtained title to one significant 
"green area" in such a subdivision which has provided a link between 
Indian Ridge and Baker's Meadow, both owned by the A. V. I. S. 

In its administration of the Subdivision Control Law, the Plan- 
ning Board, during 1962, endorsed 76 plans containing 136 lots under 
Form A (plans not requiring subdivision control procedure). Sixteen 
(16) subdivision plans with a total of 334 lots were submitted for con- 
sideration during 1962. Of these, eleven subdivision plan with a 
total of 292 lots have been approved; five subdivision plans with a 
total of 42 lots are still pending.

Veterans' deaths during the year totaled 41, as listed below:

World War Two 20 

Korean Conflict 2 

The peak has been reached for benefits for World War One 
veterans and their dependents. We are now receiving and processing 
an increasing number of cases of dependents of World War Two 
veterans. These cases will continue upwards until the year 1980. 
At that time the dependents of the Korean Conflict veterans will start 
to apply for assistance. In most cases the aging parents have only 
the Social Security Benefit as income, and we must supplement this 
with aid when sickness occurs and large medical bills are incurred. 



87 



Eighty percent of the permanent cases now being helped consists of 
widowed and dependent mothers or wives of veterans. Under man- 
datory law, Chapter 115, General Laws of Massachusetts, Veterans' 
Benefits Assistance is granted to all veterans, their wives, children 
and parents, if they are in need and worthy of it. 

We wish to thank the local veteran organizations, the Ameri- 
can Red Cross, all church and charitable groups, the Board of 
Selectmen and the Town Manager for their cooperation and encoura- 
gement during the past year.

Report Of Recreation Committee 

The Andover Recreation Department submits the following 
report for the year ending December 31, 1962. 

During the first three months of operation the Recreation Com- 
mittee operated the program. They were instrumental in acquiring 
the services of a Recreation Director, in maintaining the ice rink 
at the Central Plays tead and at Ballardvale and for preparation of 
information concerning acquisition of the additional land in the Pomps 
Pond area. In addition, they organized the traditional Easter Candy 
Scramble which was held on Holy Saturday for several hundred child- 
ren in the Park. 

On April 1 the Recreation Department was established with the 
first full time Director. Because of the seasonal nature of recreation, 
the Committee recommended that the Director spend much of his time 
becoming acquainted with the various facits of Town activity. Through- 
out the year he must remain oriented to seasonal changes in activity, 
leadership and interest. He must learn what these interests are, 
what persons are interested in the varied activities and what problems 
must be overcome. Because of the orientation and time factors, re- 
latively few changes were made in existing programs and only com- 
parative progress made. 



PLAYGROUNDS: 

Development - A man was employed this year to maintain and 
improve playground equipment and facilities. This proved to be very 
beneficial to the appearence and safety on the grounds. In addition, 
five large trees were planted on the grounds to prepare for the loss 
of our Elms and to provide additional shaded areas for playground 
participants. 






Training - In preparation for the season the Department sent 
all Playground Supervisors to a statewide training conference at the 
University of Massachusetts in Amherst. This two day conference 
did much to help in stimulating the program by providing new ideas 
and techniques for playground management. 

Pre-season and weekly training sessions were also held for all 
staff members in order to maintain leadership standards. These 
sessions were used as an adjunct to bulletin board announcements on 
the individual grounds and specific activity assignments. 



89 



Program - Interest was maintained throughout the season by- 
giving special emphasis to five activity areas each week. These 
areas were sports, crafts, tournaments, special events and general 
program. Each of these areas was planned and developed by an in- 
dividual staff member. In this way a balance of interest was main- 
tained which appealed to the greatest number of participants. 

Highlights - Particular interest during the season was shown 
in the Interplayground Swim Meet, Decathlon, Canobie Park Outing, 
Field Day, and the Playground Picnics. The Programs that were 
most consistantly popular were the Crafts and the Athletic program. 

POMPS POND: 

Development - A man was employed to clean and prepare the 
area during the month of June. In addition to making the area more 
attractive and gaining a "head start" on the season, it eliminated 
much of the pre -seas on vandalism that has normally occurred in 
past years. Additional improvement included the installation of ce- 
ment steps and a retaining wall in the beach area. A start was also 
made in the development of additional picnic sites. Toward the end 
of the year a small hill was denuded in preparation for an expanded 
beach area. This hill is part of the land recently acquired by the 
Town which will be developed into a community park. 

Training - An intensive program was conducted by the Water- 
front Supervisor in techniques of life saving, water safety, first aid 
and swimming instructions. Because of the lack of clarity of the 
water and the condition of the bottom, special training was also given 
in fixing the position of swimmers in trouble. 

Program - A well rounded program of swimming and diving 
instruction, life saving, general swimming and special events main- 
tained a high rate of interest throughout the summer. 

Highlights - Special events during the summer included the 
Little Three Swim Meet, Playground Swim Meet, Band Concerts and 
picnics. Use was made of the area by many groups for outings. This 
included "out of season" outings held by Christ Episcopal Church and 
the Andover Bocci Club. 

ICE RINKS: 

The rink at the Central Plays tead and at Ballardvale was sprayed 
and ready for use by December 15. This allowed for three weeks of 
skating at the end of the year. In order to facilitate the maintenance 

90 



of regular hours, a time clock was installed at each location so that 
the rinks could be illuminated at regular hours. 

COORDINATED PROGRAM: 

Many organizations in Town provide programs that are re- 
creational in nature. They have worked with the Director on general 
planning, use of facilities or borrowing equipment. Some organi- 
zations have offered direct aid in promoting the program. 

It would be impossible to thank each volunteer in every organi- 
zation for their contribution to the thousands of man hours spent in 
developing activities. It is equally impossible to count the tens of 
thousands of supervised participant hours that are enjoyed by our 
citizens or the monetary saving to the town these hours represent. 

In an effort to develop a more closely knit coordination between 
all groups, a Recreation Coordinating Council was created in Novem- 
ber. Members of the Andona Society and the League of Women Voters 
devoted many hours to develop a workable plan for such a group. 
The aim of the Council is to provide a means by which all persons 
throughout the Town will become aware of local recreation programs 
and potentials. Through this , it is hoped that the Recreation De- 
partment can better judge how to serve the people. 

The following organizations have shown interest in helping with 
the total development of the Recreation Program: 

Facility Use and Development - Boosters Club, Cemetery 
Department, Fire Department, Library Department, Park Depart- 
ment, Phillips Academy, Public Works Department, Police De- 
partment, Boy Scouts, school Department, Sacred Heart School, 
Tree Department, Water Department and many private citizens. 

Senior Citizens - Chestnut Court Association. 

Adult Activity - Badminton Club, Bocci Club, Andover Co-Op, 
Andover Male Choir, West Andover Community Center, Community 
Chorus, Duplicate Bridge Club, Great Books Study Group, Pequawket 
Mountain Club, November Club, Parents League, Skating Club, 
Men's Softball League, Rocketeer's Square Dance Club, American 
Red Cross, Tennis Club and the Y. W. C. A. 

Children's Activities - Summer Basketball League, Boy Scouts, 
Girl Scouts, Campfire Girls, Hockey Club, Junior Football League, 
Little League, Pony Baseball, Junior Baseball League, Twilight 

91 



Baseball League, Police Baseball League, Girls Softball League, 
The Teen Center and the Youth Center. 

Special Events - Halloween Festivities by the Junior Chamber 
of Commerce and the West Andover Community Center; Band Con- 
certs through the Music Performance Trust Fund of the Recording 
Industries and the Musicians Union, Local 372; Easter Candy Scram- 
ble by the Recreation Committee. 

FUTURE PLANS: 

Plans for the development of recreation facilities are based on 
the observations, suggestions and complaints of many persons . This, 
coupled with the knowledge and experience of the Director and other 
professional Recreators is incorporated into the over-all planning. 

Plans must take into consideration a growing and shifting 
population. It must also consider many different seasonal interests. 
In keeping with this, plans are being formulated for improvement and 
expansion of all playgrounds, athletic fields and facilities, the ex- 
panded Pomps Pond area for a Town Park and Indoor Facilities. 

The development of a strong, well rounded Recreation Program 
is a valuable asset to a healthy, growing community. For the cost 
of less than a daily cup of coffee, value received is estimated in 
thousands of dollars to each citizen. Leaders in the fields of econo- 
mics, medicine, psychiatrics, education, public safety and probation 
work have all underwritten professionally directed recreation pro- 
grams at the local level as a powerful adjunct to their fields. By 
supporting the program, each citizen contributes toward making 
Andover a better place in which to live. 

Respectfully Submitted

Machine accounting had its first full year of operation 
and proved to be effective in controlling internal audit. The full 
impact of controls enabled the state auditors to release water bills 
a full month earlier than ever before. 

A review of all water department procedures was instigated 
to stream-line the 1963 operations.

In its first full year of operation, the new Engineering De- 
partment has shown itself to be a valuable addition to the Town 
government. The nature of the department is such that it deals 
largely with public utilities, and therefore supplements the 
Public Works Department. 

Among the projects undertaken in cooperation with the Public 
Works Department were: design and construction of drains on 
Argilla Road and Wildwood; sewer design for the Town Yard; side- 
walk construction on Love joy Road; and street lines for the Tree 
Department • 

The Department has assisted nearly every board, committee, 
and office of the Town on engineering matters. Additionally, many 
private individuals, engineers, contractors, and builders have 
sought and obtained advice and assistance on matters pertaining to 
established policy and regulations of the Town. 

Coordination between the Town government and various consult- 
ants and other governmental agencies on engineering matters was a 
function of the department. The Engineer actively engaged in 
planning the Love joy Road reconstruction, Rogers Brook improve- 
ments, laying out Gleason Street for acceptance, and the study and 
implementation of the new Master Drainage Plan. 

Field surveys were made for easements, on land owned by or to 
be acquired by the Town, gravel pits, and proposed building sites, 
in addition to the surveys necessary for utilities improvements. 

During the year, 11 new subdivisions of land added 292 house 
lots in the Town. Each of the subdivision plans was studied in 
detail before approval for conformance with the Planning Board 
Rules and Regulations and for adequacy of utilities proposed. 
Utilities under construction in other subdivisions were periodi- 
cally inspected for proper installation.

Report Of Tree, 
Moth And Dutch Elm Depts. 

The Tree Department planted 155 shade trees along public 
streets in 1962, In addition 55 shade and ornamental flowering 
trees purchased by the School Department were planted at the West 
Elementary and Shawsheen School grounds. 

Maintenance of shrubbery beds in the Town Park on Chestnut 
Street was assigned to the Tree Department this year. All shrubs 
and trees were pruned, all beds weeded, cultivated and edged. 
Removal of overgrown plants and replacement with UO flowering 
shrubs was accomplished. The Andover Village Improvement Society 
and the Andover Garden Club contributed money toward the cost of 
these shrubs. 

A spray program designed to protect Andover ! s shade trees 
from destructive insects and diseases was carried out. Approved 
application methods and insecticides were used. Foliar feeding 
was continued in this program. Dutch Elm disease appeared in 85 
public elms in 1962. Of these 70 have been cut and burned and the 
remaining trees will be removed by March prior to emergence of elm 
bark beetles, known carriers of this widespread disease. A tele- 
scopic crane and a skyworker were used in topping 2U dead and dan- 
gerous trees. The newly purchased town stump chipper performed 
well in the removal of some 65 stumps to date. The men from the 
Massachusetts Department of Natural Resources assisted in Dutch 
Elm scouting and removal of 35 dead elms. Over 125 dead and dis- 
eased elms were removed this year. 

Considerable time and effort was expended in planning and 
supervision of tree work during the relocation of some kO houses 
and garages due to construction of route U95« 

A town shade tree nursery by Haggetts Pond was prepared and 
partially planted. 175 small trees were set out and maintained. 
Land clearing projects were performed at the town dump site and 
Pomps Pond recreational area. 

Roadside mowing, brush cutting and chemical brush control 
was continued. Poison ivy control by chemical spray was done 
along roadsides, at playgrounds and school areas. Regular depart- 
ment work of pruning, low limb removal, dead and dangerous tree 
removal, cabling, utility wire and pole clearance supervision, and 
inspection was performed. Tree Department personnel worked during 
all snow and ice storms, salting, sanding and plowing streets and 
sidewalks.

Parks 

There are two regular size diamonds at the Central Playstead, 
one regular size diamond at Woburn Street Playground, six Little 
League Fields, two at Central, two at Woburn Street Playground, and 
two in the rear of the West Center School. 

Portable bleachers are erected at the Little League Field on 
the Woburn Street Playground and at the Central Little League Field, 
also portable bleachers are erected at the Central area for the 
football field. 

Fertilizer was applied in the Spring on both the Park and 
Playstead areas. These two areas were rolled by the Park Depart- 
ment. 

Bridges 

The bridges under control of the Department of Public Works 
were inspected many times during the year, one on Stevens Street 
and one on Central Street.

Locke Street, Wolcott Avenue, Essex Street, Central Street 
from Abbot Bridge to Phillips Street, Lowell Street from Route 93, 
and 600 ! past Greenwood Road were resurfaced with one course type I 
Bituminous concrete. All catch basins and grates were raised to 
the proper heights. This project was done by the Highway Depart- 
ment. 



97 



Sidewalks were constructed of type D-13 Bituminous material 
on the following streets: Chestnut Street near Central Street, 
Central Street from Chestnut Street to School Street, and a gravel 
sidewalk on Love joy Road for a distance of some U,000 feet. Some 
of the cement slabs in Shawsheen Village were repaired. 

Two catch basins were constructed on Bellevue Road. Two catch 
basins were constructed on Argilla Road and $00 ' of 30" pipe laid. 
Two catch basins and two manholes were constructed on Wildwood Road 
and 600 » of 12" pipe laid. 

Sufficient concrete post were purchased to replace many broken 
ones on High Street, Lowell Street, River Road and Dascomb Road. 

The following road surfaces were treated with asphalt and 
honed : 

Andover St., Applet re e Lane, Arthur Rd. , Avon St., Ayer St., 
Bailey Rd., Beech Circle, Boutwell Rd., Bowdoin Rd., Brechin Ter- 
race, Cabot Rd., Cassimere St., Cedar Rd. , Central St., Chandler

Water System 

In 1962 under the capital expenditure program, U2U5 1 of 12" 
main were laid in Love joy Road, 3175 ' of 12" main were laid across 
country from Pine Street, across country toward upper Elm Street 
by Merrimac College, 120 f of 6" near the girl's dormitory, and 718' 
of 8" pipe in Dale Street. The College paid kO% of the cross coun- 
try line and all the cost of the 6" line. 3U house services were 
changed to the new line on Love joy Road. 

Route U°5 construction was started late in the fall with work 
continuing throughout the winter; approximately 1880 1 of water main 
and 1230 feet of sewer main were constructed. Abandoned water ser- 
vices on Walker Avenue, Corbett Street and Cornell Road were dis- 
connected at the main. Four hydrants were removed and two reset. 

Under Highway resurfacing, 26 services were renewed in Essex 
Street, Locke Street, and Central Street from Andover Street to 
Phillips Street. Corresponding gate boxes were raised. 

12 broken mains were repaired 
16 hydrants were repaired or replaced 
7 main taps were made for special work 
15° new services were connected 
235 new meters were installed 

352 special readings were taken in connection with property sales and 
special services, over 1000 special calls were tabulated. 

The 150 horsepower motor at Haggetts Pond was replaced. 

After inspection of the steel tanks, cleaning was deferred to 1963. 

Subdivision work again required considerable supervision with final 
testing and chlorinating. Two large subdivisions were partially 
constructed and will be completed in the spring. 

Close examination of Haggetts Pond water, with the use of a 
microscope, enabled the department to control algae conditions and 
aided in keeping taste and odor problems to a minumum. 

A new wood cover was placed over the 6" main on the Tewksbury 
bridge •

SEWERAGE STSTEM 

No large mains were constructed this year. 

Two failures occurred in the outfall sewer in South Lawrence 
again this year. Rebuilding of this portion of the line must be 
considered in the near future. 

The sand beds at the Ballardvale treatment plant were cleaned 
three times and reconditioned completely once. 

The abandoned pipe at the rear of the shopping center was re- 
claimed. 

Under route h$S construction, approximately 1230' of main was 
laid. Control of the outfall and inverted syphon in this area is 
a problem requiring periodic inspection. Several test pits were 
dug to obtain depth and location information. The jacking pit has 
been made for installation under the Railroad bed. This work will 
be started this winter. 

Over 100 sewer blocks were cleared and 20 new services were 
added to the system. 

For the Highway resurfacing program, manhole covers were 
raised on Essex Street, Locke Street, VJolcott Avenue, and Central 
Street from Andover Street to Phillips Street. The joints on the 
Central Street main in this area were repaired to stop a leakage 
that has been occurring.

Report Of Trustees Oi 
Spring Grove Cemetery 



The Trustees of Spring Grove Cemetery submit their 
Annual Report for the year 1962. 

During the year, the Cemetery sold 29 new lots and had 
87 interments. There were 6 more lots sold than in 1961 
and 22 more interments . From the perpetual care payments 
on these lot sales and from payments made by 3 lot holders 
placing their older lots under perpetual care, a total of 
$4178.50 was given to the Town Treasurer to be added to 
the Perpetual Care Fund. This fund now totals $142,040 
and income amounting to $5358.20 was received from it in 
1962. This income can be used at any time to reduce the 
operating cost of the Cemetery if the Town so wishes. 

A total of $4480.32 was received from the sale of new 
lots, interments, vault sales, foundation charges and for 
the care of lots not under perpetual care. These general 
receipts and the income from Perpetual Care Funds totaled 
$9838.52 All of this was turned over to the Town Treasu- 
rer by the Cemetery. While the 1962 Cemetery appropria- 
tion was $27,672 because of this re-imbursement , the 
actual cash cost to the Town was reduced to $17,834. 

Our annual road improvement was continued and 650 addi- 
tional feet of hot-top road added. We now have 6321 feet 
of permanently surfaced road which allows access to the 
Cemetery the entire year.

Fire Department 



The 1962 Report of the Fire Department is hereby submitted. 

Service: 

A total of 1482 calls for service of all types was answered. 
Twelve false alarms of fire were sounded and in most instances the 
curiosity of children in the five to ten year age group was found to 
be the cause. Mutual Aid responses to surrounding towns and cities 
amounted to nine. 

The estimated loss from fire of all types was approximately 
$110, 636. 00. This figure represents for the most part the actual 
loss settlement on property and contents involved in fire. The 
valuation of all properties (90%) wherein fire occurred was approxi- 
mately $4,901,445. 00. 

Ambulance calls totalled five hundred and ninety-seven. Non- 
resident patients were billed for this service eighty times. Of this 
number seventy-four were billed at $10.00 each and six were billed 
at $25. 00 each for a total of $865. 00, payable to the Town Treasurer 

Fire Prevention: 



Inspections and the issuance of permits for the installation of 
fuel oil burning equipment amounted to one hundred and ninety-five. 
A fee of fifty cents is received for each of these permits and is 
turned over to the Town Treasurer the first of each month. Thirty- 
eight Liquified Petroleum Gas Systems were installed and in turn 
inspected by this Department after receiving notice that the instal- 
lation had been completed. Permits for the use of explosives were 
issued a total of eighteen times to persons whose competence is 
verified by the Department of Public Safety of the State of Mass- 
achusetts and who have either posted a bond locally or possess a 
bond running to the State of Massachusetts for surities in the event 
of damage claims. Approximately five thousand permits for open- 
air fires were issued during the past year. A state statute, Chap. 
48, Sec. 13 requires that any individual, before setting a fire in the 
open-air, obtain from the head of the fire department or the forest 
warden, a permit. Said permit can only be given in name of the 
owner of the land upon which the fire is to be set and maintained 
until completely out. Incinerators (outside), if of a type acceptable 
to the Fire Chief and located as he deems advisable and protected 
by a spark arrestor, are considered as complying with this law in 
the Town of Andover. 



107 



Inspections of all public schools, private schools, mercantile, 
industrial and dwelling buildings (three or more families) of which 
we are aware, were carried out to the extent provided for by law 
and a report made to owners or other proper authority concerning 
the conditions existing at the time of the inspection. 

Personnel: 

At present there are thirty-four Permanent members and a 
call force of five members. Permanent men work an average of 
fifty-six hours per week. Four of these permanent men work a 
schedule of days only in order to supplement the day time coverage 
wherein the ambulance responses take two firemen from the fire 
fighting forces. Experience is showing that due to fire responses 
and ambulance calls that the day time shift necessitates this supple- 
mental coverage. 

Apparatus: 

The Central Fire Station on Park Street garages two pumpers, 
an Aerial Ladder, Forest Fire truck, Ambulance, Chief's car, 
a rescue boat and trailer, a fire alarm maintenance trailer and a 
Utility pick-up truck. 

The Ballardvale station garages one pumper, a rescue boat 
and trailer and a reserve pumper (1937) that we keep in case of 
out-of-service time for other pumpers in the department. 

Fire Alarm: 

The Program of replacing street boxes of past design is still 
in progress and approximately three quarters of this project is com- 
pleted. Constant testing and maintenance is required to keep our 
present system in operating condition. Approximately sixty miles 
of wiring consisting of 48 miles of aerial and 12 miles of under- 
ground cable is maintained in the system. 

The removal of and replacement of portions of our system is 
required by the new Route 495 in Andover in the vicinity of Route 28 
and the Shawsheen area. Labor and materials must be paid for by 
the Town but a force account which has been approved by the State 
means that a full reimbursement of said monies to the Town for this 
work is approved. 

The new Sanborn Elementary School was connected to our 
system in order to automatically or manually transmit a signal to 
our stations in time of fire. All public schools in Andover and St. 
Augustine's School are so equipped. 



108 



Conclusion: 

The Ballardvale station has increased on-duty manpower now 
and the Callmen for this station have been abolished. At present 
there are three men on duty on all three shifts in this station. A 
lieutenant is in charge of each shift. The Callmen of this company 
and those of the Central station company who were dropped from 
duty this past year have performed untold duties far beyond the 
call of duty for the Town of Andover over the many years. Their 
faithful and efficient performance of duties both on and off the re- 
cord should be regarded by all residents as one of the notable 
achievements of a Town Department which has run the gamut from 
hand drawn fire fighting equipment and volunteer firefighters 
through the varied progressive steps in firefighting to the present 
day motorized vehicular fire fighting equipment and increased on- 
duty permanent firefighters. Their value to the Town will never be 
realized in dollars and cents. 

I wish to thank the Town Manager for his cooperation, the men 
of the department for their efficient and faithful performance of 
duty and the telephone operators of the Lawrence offices who year 
after year calmly pass along many messages of emergency. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Henry L. Hilton, Chief

Report Of Civil Defense Agency 

The following items have been or are being completed: 

The 1962 appointment of four assistant directors has become 
official: 

Mr. Alec Ritchie 

Mr. Winston Briggs 

Mr. John Kemper of Phillips Academy- 
Mr. E. G. Fraim of Raytheon Manufacturing Co. 

In Communications - The control center is now completed in 
the Town Hall basement - 3 new mobile units have been added to the 
existing net of radio facilities, making a total of 30 available units 
in an emergency. A new G-50 Base Transceiver has been installed 
and is now in operation at the Town Hall. In addition, the Raytheon 
Mfg. Company has purchased a new radio for tie-in communications 
with the RACES group. The Red Cross has purchased a similar unit 
in order to be in communication with the Civil Defense authorities. 
The Communications group, under the direction of Mr. Alex Ritchie, 
is meeting, as in the past, on a weekly basis. This unit has been 
used several times during the past year and is on a Ready Stand-By 
Basis. The Auxilary Police Unit, under the direction of Mr. Winston 
Briggs, has, as of the first of the year, donated to the Town of And- 
over, some 4500 man hours. This unit meets on a monthly basis and 
is on a Ready Stand-By Basis. The Auxilary Fire Department is 
being organized by the past Civil Defense Director, Lee Noyes. Chief 
Hilton has offered this unit a vehicle for training purposes. This unit 
will be in operation sometime in 1963. The Hospital Unit, now in 
storage, has been checked and brought up to date as of June 21, 1962. 
The Rescue Unit vehicle is now stored under cover on the Shaw Estate 
property. The unit is being increased in personnel and plans are 
being made to send a group to the Training Center in Topsfield. 

The program of the evacuation of the school children is still 
under consideration. Many factors depend on a final decision. As 
of now, with a minimum of 45 minutes warning, provisions are being 
made to evacuate all elementary school children. A plan for complete 
evacuation of all grades via busses and patrols is now under consider- 
ation. 



117 



At this reporting, the Fall-Out Shelter program still empha- 
sizes family-level protection. Subsequently, we are in the process 
of trying to get the state to re -evaluate some of our better constructed 
public and private buildings. In order to get Federal assistance in 
marking and provisioning permanent and interim shelters, we must 
first procure signed licenses giving the use of said building for 
shelters. Assistance in obtaining these licenses is surely needed. 
Any assistance or help you, as an individual, can render, will be 
appreciated. Please contact your Director for details. Permanent 
shelters will receive complete stocks of food, medical supplies, and 
water, adequate for sustaining personnel sheltered for 14 days. In- 
terim shelters will receive state aid in the marking of buildings only. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Burton B. Batcheller 
Director Civil Defense

Annual Report 
School Building Committee 

Construction of the Henry C. Sanborn School which had begun 
in the late Summer of 1961 came to a virtual halt during the Winter 
months. By last Spring, there was considerable apprehension on 
the part of many people that the school would not be ready for Fall 
occupancy. At the constant urging of the committee, however, and 
with the complete cooperation of the architect, contractor and Clerk 
of the Works, the school opened in September of 1962, only two days 
late. 

Certain problems in the cafeteria delayed the serving of hot 
lunches for an additional two weeks, but by October the school was 
completely operational. The only work remaining to be done is on 
the grounds which must wait until Spring. 

We have managed to remain comfortably within our original 
budget of $946, 572. 38. With good luck, we may have a modest sum 
to return to the town.

Planning District 

During 1962, the Planning Services Group completed the fihal 
three reports of the federally-assisted two-year planning program 
for the region. The entire series of five reports, with supplementary 
maps, makes a comprehensive development plan for the four-com- 
munity region, which will be subject to a process of continual refine- 
ment and revision. 

The third report. "Transportation Prospects", was presented 
in January at a dinner meeting sponsored by the Greater Lawrence 
Chamber of Commerce and the Development and Industrial Com- 
mission. Rail, bus, and air transportation, as well as the highway 
and street network are examined in some detail. Trends are pre- 
dicted and problems, present and future, outlined. Recommendations 
for local, state, and federal action are made. This report initially 
aroused considerable dissatisfaction owing to misunderstanding re- 
garding the future of the Lawrence Airport, a matter subsequently 
clarified. 

The fourth report "Regional Resources and Facilities", pre- 
sented at a luncheon meeting in September, covers open space plan- 
ning, water supply, sewerage and drainage, refuse disposal, and 
educational facilities, again with analysis of existing conditions, 
predictions of trends, and recommendations for action. 

The fifth and last report, "Future Development" was presented 
at an October luncheon meeting. It is divided into three parts: 
(1) statement of regional development policy, or a series of regional 
objectives mutually agreed upon by the representatives of the four 
member communities, (2) regional development plan, a map in color, 
showing proposed land uses and densities, as well as existing natural 
and man-made features, and (3) regional development program, out- 
lining various means of accomplishing the various recommendations 
of the plan. 

At the present time, application for further federal assistance 
is being processed. It is expected that early in 1963, the region will 
have the funds to set up an office with a virtually full-time profes- 
sional planner, who will, however, retain his affiliation with the 
consulting firm, The Planning Services Group. This planner will 
carry out various planning studies for the region, as already agreed 
upon by the Commission and the Federal Government, and in addition, 
will be available to assist in any regional planning problems which 
may arise in any or all of the four communities. 

123 



During 1962, the Commission, and sometimes also its consul 
tants, attended various meetings with Lawrence city officials and 
civic leaders. Subject matter was usually the impact of new high- 
ways and various related problems. 

In 1962, the Commission agreed to rotate the office of Chair- 
man. Mr. Donald A. MacNeil of Lawrence is serving as Chairman 
from May, 1962, to May, 1963. At that time the Andover represen- 
tative will become Chairman, followed in succeeding years by the 
representatives from North Andover and Methuen.

Municipal Building Committee 

Pursuant to Article 18 in the 1962 Town Warrant, a Municipal 
Buildings Committee was appointed by the Town Manager, "for the 
purpose of preparing preliminary plans for a new Town House, Fire 
and Police Stations in the Main Street area of Andover", and $7500 
was voted for this purpose. On June 8, 1962 the Committee, as 
organized, held its first meeting. 

The Committee prepared a list of comparable towns, with 
similar facilities, for visitation. From these inspections desirable 
features were learned and a list of prospective architects was made. 
It was also requested that the Town Manager, Fire and Police Chiefs 
submit area requirements for their needs, with consideration for 
probable future growth. 

Early cooperation with Urban Renewal was established, and 
on June 15th a meeting was held with the Urban Renewal Director. 
At this time, it was established that the proposed site for the Town 
facilities had been visualized as the Barnard-Square & Compass 
properties, embodying the relocation of High Street. 

The Fire Chief agreed to confer with the New England Fire 
Insurance Rating Association for recommendations on the location 
of the Fire Station, and they were received some time later, after 
studies were completed. 

Later in June, and early in July, police and fire station 
facilities in Marblehead, Swampscott, Concord and Wayland were 
visited, and valuable information was obtained which was helpful 
in improving the design of the proposed buildings. Following this, 
and with Andover 's future growth in mind, the new Town Hall in 
Methuen was inspected, since it is the newest of its kind. Here, 
again, helpful ideas were learned, although their layout would not 
fit our requirements in several ways. 

Fortified with this background, and with estimated area re- 
quirements from the various Department Heads, the Committee felt 
that it was in a position to interview the several architectural firms 
under consideration. During July and August, six were interviewed. 
The firm of Perry, Shaw, Hepburn & Dean, of Boston, was finally 
selected to perform the work, and, in Mid-August was commissioned 
to start work. 



125 



The Barnard-Square & Compass Club properties and the Shaw 
property were inspected. It was agreed that the Shaw property was 
too small, and that efforts would be concentrated on the Barnard- 
Square & Compass Club site. 

On August 31st, the Committee was presented with tentative 
plans showing the buildings arranged on the above property. This 
brought out the fact that this site was too small if all three facilities 
were to be located together, so it was agreed that additional pro- 
perty, outside the Urban Renewal Area, would have to be acquired, 
The Town Hall and Police Station would be the only buildings on this 
site, and another site would have to be found for the Fire Station. 

At this meeting, the size of the proposed Town Hall came in 
for considerable discussion and study. The Committee felt that the 
30, 000 sq. ft. suggested, as compared to the present area of 8, 000 
or 10,000 sq. ft., was larger and more costly than required. A 
building in the vicinity of 20, 000 sq. ft. , or approximately twice 
the present size, seemed adequate for even the future, in view of 
the modern methods of office procedure. 

Through the months of September and October, much time was 
spent between the architect, the committee and department heads in 
going over the floor plan. On the basis of requirements given by 
each department head, preliminary plans neared the state of com- 
pletion. A great deal of effort has been made, and will be made, to 
satisfy all requirements where practicable. 

During this time, fire and police stations were also discussed 
and found to be satisfactory, after some changes and modifications. 

By November, it was decided that plans had progressed suffi- 
ciently to be able to present a fairly concise Report of Progress to 
the Board of Selectmen and Finance Committee, previous to which 
plans were too fluid to be discussed. During November floor plans 
and exterior designs were presented at a joint meeting of the Select- 
men and Finance Committee, and these met with favorable response 
from both groups. Up to this time, however, the location of the Fire 
Station still remained in doubt. 

The recommendations of the New England Fire Rating Associ- 
ation had been received and reviewed. Since they felt a location 
between Andover Center and Shawsheen was the most effective from 
the standpoint of fire protection, a search of that area was made. 
As a result, the site just off Main St. on Stevens St. , opposite the 



126 



Marland Mills, was chosen as the best available property. This 
site was selected out of a total of seven locations, all of which were 
seriously considered. 

The Committee is still active, and this is being submitted as 
a report showing that all major decisions have been reached.

Report Of The Director Of Accounts 



August 17, 1962 

To the Board of Selectmen 

Mr. Russell G. Doyle, Chairman 

Andover, Massachusetts 

Gentlemen: 

I submit herewith my report of an audit of the books 
and accounts of the town of Andover for the fiscal 
year 196l, made in accordance with the provisions of 
Chapter Uk, General Laws. This is in the form of a 
report made to me by Mr. William Schwartz, Assistant 
Director of Accounts. 

Very truly yours, 

ARTHUR H. MacKINNON 
Director of Accounts 



Mr. Arthur H. MacKinnon 

Director of Accounts 

Department of Corporations and Taxation 

State House, Boston 

Sir: 

As directed by you, I have made an audit of the books 
and accounts of the Town of Andover for the fiscal year 
196l, the following report being submitted thereon: 

The recorded financial transactions of the several 
departments receiving or disbursing money for the town 
or committing bills for collection were examined, 
checked and compared with the records of the town ac- 
countant and the town treasurer. 



128 



TCie books and accounts in the town accountant's of- 
fice were examined and checked in detail. The record- 
ed receipts were checked with the treasurer's cash 
book and with the records of departmental payments to 
the treasurer, while the recorded disbursements were 
checked with the treasury warrants and with the records 
of payments by the treasurer. 

The appropriations and loan orders, as listed from 
the town clerk's records of town meeting votes, were 
checked with the accountant's ledger. 

An analysis was made of the ledger accounts, a trial 
balance was drawn off proving the accounts to be in 
balance, the necessary adjusting entries resulting 
from the audit were made, and a balance sheet, which 
is appended to this report, was prepared showing the 
financial condition of the town on December 31, 196l. 

The books and accounts of the town treasurer were 
examined and checked. The receipts, as recorded, were 
analyzed and compared with the records of payments to 
the treasurer by the several departments and with other 
sources from which the town received money, while the 
recorded payments were compared with the warrants au- 
thorizing the treasurer to disburse town funds and with 
the accountant's books. 

The cash book was footed throughout for the period 
of the audit, and the cash balance on December 31, 19&1 
was proved by reconciliation of the bank balance with 
statements furnished by the banks of deposit, by exam- 
ination of the savings bank book, the certificates of 
deposit, and the safekeeping receipts for treasury 
bills, and by actual count of the cash in the office. 

The payments on account of maturing debt and Interest 
were checked with the amounts falling due and with the 
cancelled securities and coupons on file. The out- 
standing coupons were listed and reconciled with the 
bank balance as shown by a statement furnished by the 
bank of deposit. 

The records of tax titles and tax possessions held 
by the town were examined and checked in detail. The 
amounts transferred to the tax title account were com- 
pared with the collector's records and the accountant's 
books, the recorded redemptions were checked with the 



129 



treasurer's cash book, the foreclosures were verified, 
and the tax titles and tax possessions on hand were 
listed, proved and checked with the records at the 
Registry of Deeds. 

The securities and savings bank books, representing 
the investment of the trust, investment, and retire- 
ment funds in the custody of the town treasurer and 
the treasurer of the trustees of the John Cornell Wel- 
fare Fund, the Punchard Free School Funds, and the 
Memorial Hall Library Funds, were examined and listed. 
The income was proved, the disbursements were verified, 
and all transactions and balances were reconciled with 
the accountant's books. 

The records of payroll deductions on account of Fed- 
eral and State taxes, purchase of savings bonds, group 
insurance, and the United Fund were examined and recon- 
ciled with the treasurer's and the accountant's books. 

The books and accounts of the tax collector were ex- 
amined and checked in detail. The commitments of taxes, 
excise, special assessments, and water liens were ex- 
amined and compared with the warrants issued for their 
collection. The recorded collections were checked with 
the payments to the treasurer and with the accountant's 
records, the abatements were compared with the assess- 
ors' records of abatements granted, and the outstanding 
accounts were listed and proved with the controlling 
ledger accounts. 

Further verification of the outstanding accounts was 
made by mailing notices to a number of persons whose 
names appeared on the books as owing money to the town, 
and from the replies received thereto it appears that 
the accounts, as listed, are correct. 

The records of dog and sporting licenses issued by 
the town clerk and of miscellaneous collections from 
permits, recording fees, etc., were examined and 
checked, the payments to the State and to the town 
treasurer being verified. 

The books and accounts in the water department were 
examined and checked in detail. An analysis was made 
of the charges, collections, liens added to taxes, etc. 
The recorded payments to the treasurer were compared 
with the treasurer's and the accountant's books, the 



130 



outstanding accounts were listed, and the cash balance 
on December 31, 1961 was proved by actual count. 

The records of receipts of the sealer of weigits and 
measures and the inspectors of buildings, plumbing, and 
wires, as well as of the police, fire, health, sewer, 
school, library, and cemetery departments, and of all 
other departments collecting money for the town or com- 
mitting bills for collection, were examined and checked 
The payments to the treasurer were verified, the out- 
standing accounts were listed and proved, and the cash 
balances were verified by actual count of the cash on 
hand in the several departments • 

The surety bonds of the town officials who are re- 
quired to furnish surety for the faithful performance 
of their duties were examined and found to be in prop- 
er form. 

Appended to this report, in addition to the balance 
sheet, are tables showing reconciliations of the 
treasurers and town clerk's cash, summaries of the 
tax, excise, assessment, tax title, tax possession, 
departmental, and water accounts, as well as schedules 
showing the condition and transactions of the several 
trust, investment, and retirement funds. 

For the co-operation extended by all town officials 
during the progress of the audit, I wish, on behalf 
of my assistants and for myself, to express apprecia- 
tion. 



Respectfully submitted, 



WILLIAM SCHWARTZ 

Assistant Director 
of Accounts
